After a long week, we received some great news on Friday.
Starting tomorrow, we paramedics are being sent to the street to ride on an engine company with a FF/PM for a total of forty hours. We'll be on varying schedules; for instance, I'm working one 16-hour shift and one 24-hour shift. Ideally, we'd be able to get some evaluations completed, but I suspect it's more of an introduction to our role as providers.
We'll be spread out all over the city, and so I'm sure everyone will regroup next week with some good stories about our short stint of being in the companies. Although we're still waiting for permanent assignments, we're definitely making progress in the right direction.
