It's certainly not common for EMT's to start IV's, but in the end it would be up to the medical director in charge to determine how far they can go. When I took my EMT course (in Florida 2003) they showed us how and let us try to start IV's on the dummies, but it wasn't anything official. At the time that county had a pretty progressive medical director in charge of the county and were actually working on putting clot breakers on the county rigs for the medics to use on stroke victims (if the stroke was witnessed).

I finished the class and decided after my required ride time was done that I wasn't interested in making $8.30/hr when I could get $9 putting down asphalt (no chance of being puked, pissed, or s*** on).

Hospital paramedic 15-19 an hour
theme park 12-18 and hour.

Holy crap man, $45,000 for a firefighter medic? It's over 60k here in Cincinnati....for EMT/firefighters. And that's with the knowledge that in my 12 years on with the CFD, I have had no raise whatsoever in 4 years.

In Ohio, its pretty much not worth it to become a medic if you work for a private. It's always better to get on with a fire department, or even work through a hospital. I know a couple of guys who have gotten their medic cards, then decided the best route would be to become nurses.

The pay range is drastic. The county and city pay over $10k less a year than the surrounding counties out here. And as expensive as Maryland is to live in, I could make several thousand more a year starting out back home in Ohio where it is much cheaper to live.
