    Default SC or NC residents

    Is anybody in the states of SC or NC?

    im looking to move out of michigan and im curious as to how the scene is down there. up here, its umemployment rate going up, cost of living going up, firefighter jobs going down, wayyyyyy down. its slim pickings up here. also, does NC or SC allow FF1 and FF2 transfers and are they a national medic state? just any information would be greatly appericative...also, if there are any dept's currently hiring that 'd help too, but i cant be too greedy

    please just address the topic as SC or NC FIRE JOBs so i dont delete it thinking its spam.

    thanks to all who reply.

    North Carolina has a process for transferring Paramedic, but you have to be certified in another state or NREMT, AND have a letter from an agency that says that upon certification, you will be hired to work for them.

    South Carolina is National Registry. If you move there and do not have NREMT status, you are required to get NREMT certified within one year.

    Best bet is to check the EMS office sites.

    As for firefighter, you can get FF I/II in SC if you have one of the national boards' certification.

    Actually Sharkie all you need to work in SC is your state card, national registry is nice but unless you are a federal firefighter you can get a job at all without the state card.
    As far as fire certs go SC is an IFSAC state, as long as you have IFSAC or Pro Board the most you would have to do is challenge the test. You can call the Fire Academy for more info 1800-896-1070

    btw email me at truck12irons@yahoo.com I know of a few job openings on depts around the state.

    Ah ha. Last time I looked at SC, when I was applying to grad school, they said that you needed to get the NREMT cert. after a while. You could work as a Paramedic, but needed to get the cert within a set amount of time, if you didn't have it.
