    It's in left field. They hiring now but it's a regular process. They aren't going just for medics. They certainly didn't just go ALS.

    That must have been a rumor from years back when they temporarily staffed ambulances to help Medstar with response issues. That only occured for a few months and they used existing medics. They haven't been trying to get their guys anything above EMT. A pat on the back and "good luck" is the extent of it.

    They will hire medics, but it's not anything that would help. They still hire un-certified and EMTs, FF-only, etc. etc.

    A recent study came out that essentially says they're going to keep things the way they are for the foreseeable future.
