    One thing to keep in mind fellas...days off in Iraq and days off at home pay the same. And as the sites get loaded up with personnel, days off become reality. Good luck.

    Default training for ems

    any idea if there is ems training. I have been a basic since 2004 and just finished my EMT-I course and failed the state exam. Only 4 in the entire class passed the state test. Will there EMS training so I do not loose my EMT cert?

    Default EMS Training

    There will be EMS training but it is up to your state if they will accept it for the CEU's. I'm from FL and they do not, so I had to do online classes from an approved school. When I did the little pt test it was a joke so anyone that can get up from a couch is good.

    Default ceu credits for EMT-I/P recertifiction

    Depending on what state you are in , check with them on the requirements for re-certification. i know for the State of Georgia you can do the entire 40 hr re-certification online at this location.

    http://www.georgiaemsacademy.com

    They also offer most for what you need for National Registry The 40 hr online CEU is only 75.00

    Gary Crews is running this business, he is very informative and experienced. Check out his website and email him, if he cannot do everything you need, he most certinly can help you find somewhere to do it.

    Default Enough hours

    Hey folks..I got an offer to start Sept 21 which Im psyched about, but trying to figure out if there is really going to be enough work over there in terms of hours/contract ending etc. Im not talking about call volume, just how the end of WSI's contract and/or downsizing of the military will effect it all. Anyone have some insight?

    Default wont make it

    hey guys good luck in Houston and in iraq. I will not make it over there. Sunday night I got burnt pretty bad and right now I am out of work for at least a 1.5 months and in an out of the Doctor and burn center. I was in a hurry cleaning up my yard and started tried to start a fire to burn the tree limbs I cut down. The fire blew me back and I triped over my gas can. That turned into a mess when the can blew underneath me. I have first degree on my legs, second and third degree on my right arm and first and second on my face. Doctor said direct sunlight would not be good for me for a while. Kinda looking like a freak right now but at least I am here to see my kids. You guys be safe and send me some pics from over there.

    Later
