I would agree w/ Killjoy. I rarely use my EMT Training while on Patrol, also due to the fact that we have a few crazy intersections in town that I wouldn't dare turn my back to as well as excellent response times from our FD. I get the chance every now and then at the Tweeter Ctr. while working the Police Detail. Event EMS usually takes a few minutes to make their way through all the people and traffic in the parking lots. I too do not receive any kind of stipend.Killjoy275 said:I actually find that there is very little call for my EMT training. Most of the time I find myself doing more police functions that forstall any attempt to do EMT-type work. Setting up flare-lines, securing scenes etc. I can, however, see the value in EMT certified officers, particulary in rural areas with long response times.
