Fire Medic 45 grand a year. Im using my dept current salaries.. depending on where you get hired it could be more or less. we're in the middle
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.
