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.
