    Default LF: EMT's to work up north near Cold Lake!

    We are looking for an EMT to work just outside of cold lake for a range of dates over the next few months with the possibility for full-time employment.

    You must have all your tickets (H2S, CSTS, First-Aid, etc) and be registered with ACP.

    Only those with previous experience working industrial or for a service will be considered.

    Rate will be $400-425/day and you will be staying either in a camp or in a hotel. If hotel then you will be given a food allowance of usually $50/day.

    You will be required to drive to site or Cold Lake in your own vehicle, you will be paid for your travel.

    We are in need of someone that can work Jan 24-Feb 4 as we have medics scheduled to go on days off then but there may be some other dates available.

    Please PM me if interested!

    Thanks

    Jason

    Fixed.

    I had a friend that did it for about 9 months. Sat in his truck (as he was required) for hours on end reading books and playing games on his Gameboy/tablet. He occasionally was asked for a bandage or butterfly sutures and only twice drove anyone to the hospital.

    Went back to the city because he couldn't handle the sheer boredom.

    Yea that reminds me of the time I was land surveying near a lease site in NE alberta (Hinton area?) .... in the middle of the bush when this guy just walks out of nowhere - we thought he was lost - but he said "its my usual route". He was an EMT sitting in his truck all day and went for a stroll through bear country.

    Hmm... My experience with EMT's is just chillin on the rig. They didn't have to sit in their trucks, had a shack. Would roam the rig around lunch time, usually chatting it up with someone. lol

    I guess there is a bit of variance

    This is absolutely true, I don't think anyone in the oil patch has an easier job. The fire guys and the safeties are a close second.

    Most injuries you see up here are minor but when something does go very wrong then yes, it can be nasty.

    These jobs can definitely be boring if you don't find ways to keep yourself busy. I personally think the hardest thing is being away from significant others/friends/family. If you bring a turbo stick for internet, books, movies/tv shows, etc then I find the days actually go very quick. I've been doing this on/off for 9 years though so I'm used to it.

    I have done a bit of contract work with Forestry driving an MTC to forest fire sites, same deal there, 12 hours of hiking, and enjoying scenery, listening to radio chatter, and generally watching a fire burn can be boring if you have trouble finding things to do. We would generally do some walking around to see what we had to deal with in case of an injury.

    There is no doubt that it is gravy 99.9% of the time, its the .1% that turns most people off of it.

    Man I could totally get into that kind of job, I love to just sit, listen to music, do some reading, etc while keeping and eye on things.

    Too bad id have to go back and do a ton of schooling I bet.

    It takes less than a year now to become an EMT, it's a fairly easy course depending on how much you study and how well you learn.

    There are accelerated courses now too which are more condensed and thus have you finishing quicker.
