I'm pretty excited!
 
I'm excited that I just passed my National Registry Exam for EMT-Basic so I just wanted to post it here! :)

I was nervous as all hell for the two weeks that I had to wait to take my exam - And for obviously no reason. :) I'm actually surprised that I passed, though, because even the "star student" in our class failed his first attempt. EMT-Basic might not be too much to some of the other guys on here, but I'm thrilled!

When I joined the Conneaut Fire Department (at 16 years old - I'm now 28), I never wanted anything to do with the medical side of things partially because our station (Station #4) only handled fire calls and occasionally, car crash calls - No ambulance out of our station... Well, actually up until about a year ago, I still wasn't all that interested in it. Because of local funding issues, etc., last year we consolidated with the other part-time/volunteer station (Station #3) where the EMS calls were handled out of (Fire and EMS) and I decided to give it a try. I ran a few squad calls here and there to help out, etc. and it grew on me. I decided to take the EMT-Basic course and now here I am - I just passed my test! I'm excited to get some calls and some experience in so I can go jump into my Paramedic class and eventually go full-time firefighter/EMS.

I got my National Registry EMT card a few days ago and now I'm waiting on my Ohio Department of EMS to send me my card for Ohio...

Wooohooo!

Congrads on the certification! I deal with more EMTs than spark jumpers in my line of work, which is unfortunate actually, since I'm an industrial rescuer, and I don't like having to DO my job, if you get my drift. And don't worry Cadet, I'll get it for ya :rep:

Hahaha, thanks guys. And yeah, I get your drift. Just about every patient you leave after treating, it makes you want to smile and say, "Not to be rude, but for your own good, we hope to not see you again." :)

Thanks for the reps!
