Wow, great report with some amazing photos!
Thank you!!1 I have learned so much and found so many places to visit from these forums and hope i can do at least a little of the same. I dont know if i do it justice. Glad someone is reading it,
You get some pretty interesting medical gigs. How do you find these opportunities?
Thats a great question, and I am happy to share my trade secrets. I would like to end up doing consulting( my day job is a risk manager), and a mix of contract remote medical jobs, and volinteer disaster relief work- that the end goal I am working toward. The sacret, is to ask: and it takes a lot of companies to string contracts togather, and some like the dog sled race was all volinteer, me providing everything. Working on a " advanced first aid only" capacity, depending on the events: Anything through Event medic services, and Amphibias Medics will be that. ( for legal reasons, as you arent working under a medical director, and the licenses ( EMT, AEMT, Paramedic, dont cross state lines as far as a practical and practicing at that level)
Set Medic, Production Medic, Event Medic, Concert Medic, Construction Medic, EMT First Aid ParamedicEvent Medic Services - Providing Experienced Paramedics, EMT’s, Set Medics, Stunt Medics, Event Medics, Construction Medics, Safety Diver, Lifeguards, Water Rescue Scuba Divers, & More For Movie & TV Sets, Special Events, Construction, Concerts, & Sporting Events.www.eventmedics.com
Amphibious Medics provides on-site and on-call first aid support across the United States and in many foreign countries. Depending on your needs, we can provide medic services for one location or roving crews that move with your project to several locations.amphibiousmedics.com
Others are long term contacts, working under a medical director usually in conjunction with telemedicine.
PAE- handles the contrasts for McMurdo Station, one i have been trying to get a contract for.
And networking at those events with the various companies. Social Media, one of my endorsements MPIC, those i meet in that renewal class do a lot of the same things, so again networking is huge. The dog sled event, I just found out we had one a few hours from me ( Saw a add on FB), I contacted them to ask who their medical provider was, turns out they did not have one.
The rodeos, transports and Urban stuff are through my local Agency- also how I keep my agency affiliation license up for NREMT, and OHA.
I'm a veteran, a retired general contractor and now a volunteer firefighter/EMT working on my A. I'm in rural north west NV. Checking out the Team Rubicon site and may join up. Not sure how active they are in my area (ironically, not to far from the Rubicon Trail) but could certainly travel to other areas when needed, especially once I get my truck camper built (Going to be starting a build thread soon).
Their name, has nothing to do with the Trail or Jeep, haha go figure. Depending on the location, and how active if you have much of a local group makes a huge difference. TR, does some great work, and is currently going through some restructuring as they have just been growing so fast. If you have a strong local branch, youll be good, if not.........can be hit and miss Id still sign up, and go from there
I am happy with my Advanced, and would not go any higher ( ie Paramedic)
Looking forward to seeing your thread! And that would be helpful, if you need anyhelp with TR give a shout
They Also have a legit Medical team- but dont usually bring on " our" level(s) It does happen though, is also a long in depth process.
Are you going to do any more motorcycle trips? I've been a licensed rider since 1972 and don't heal as quickly as I used to so I went to side hacks. This also allows me to bring my dog along. And carry a bunch more crap without having to worry about balance and load.
Thats Awesome! Im only 29 and dont heal like I used too..
I will, that was my first experience ever on a moto, the first time I rode through traffic was in Santiago. I am looking at some V stroms, or an Africa Twin if I can find one at a price point i like.
Looking forward to more of your reports, especially the EMS stuff (with no HIPPA violations though! ).
Its helpful to know, some people are reading and following along, I just want to return the favor for those who helped point me in the right direction.
