CO Medic Pay
I'm finishing up my medic class and happened to be looking through "Firehouse" magazine at the station the other day when I noticed the pay for medics in CO. Do medics really start out at $70,000 in Aurora and the Denver metro? Firefighters only start out at $43,689 in that same area. That's quite a discrepancy! Around here, the difference between medic and firefighter starting pay is only a few thousand. I also found it a bit funny that the top out pay was only about $1,000 higher. I assume it's just a typo and medics may start around $50,000. Just wanting to see if anyone can confirm this.
