Ok, so..Ive been in EMS for about 8 years, been an Intermediate for the last 5. I just got my Paramedic in August, but still function as an Intermediate because of the county I live in (Columbus County, NC has no "County system", rescue squads handle their own areas and only 1 squad in the whole county is Paramedic with only 4 paid people. The rest are strictly volunteer). Anywho, I just got my 1st medic position at Sampson County EMS, and Im kinda nervous. Im leaving my "comfort zone" of the county that I now call home, to go to another county that I know nothing about. A new certification, new people, new areas, etc. I was just wandering if anyone has ever made a jump like that before, and how did you handle it? Is there anything I can do to make it easier, or make a good impression on these people? Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
