Good luck!

Well it's that time again! Time for new little students to break out of their cocoons and become paramedics! I know George is going to National Registry this week; who else is going? Good luck to all our EMT's taking Registry!
A word of advice: when y'all pass, don't try to be a good paramedic; strive to be an excellent paramedic. It will serve you well in future endeavors. We've always been better than every other EMS around. We NEED to uphold NOHD's reputation in the country. Current and future EMT's are the ones who will have to do that. For the ones that have gone before you, make us proud that we came from such a great service.
Or else we'll come back and kick your ass!

Well yes it is time a very scary time at best. We have had some great medics come down the pipe and then well........ lets hope for the best.

Thanks for the vote of confidence, but I became the medic I am today because i learned from the best medics there are...NOHD MEDICS. I would never have been confident enough, nor prepared enough to go to registry and pass if it weren't for the outstanding paramedics at NOHD that have taught me more that I could ever have hoped to learn. I hope to be half as good as those medics that took me under their wing and molded me into a medic worthy of wearing the NOHD patc. Thanks again to everyone who helped me get this far!

...and I'd like to thank my publicist, and my agent, and my mom and dad, and Mr. Schniggledore, who lived next door and always believed in me...

Yes, good luck to all who go, but to all who have been please make sure the students are prepared. You can say that this service produces very good medics and that we have a "good" reputation but now is the time for all experirnced medics to stand up and not let that reputation be tarnished by apathy. Lately I have been hearing stuff like "they don't make them like they used to" referring to "new" medics, and more often than not the blame is placed on the new education guidelines. Well guess what... YOU play a major role in the learning process for these kids wether you are a preceptor or not. When we get a new employee or student, they look to the people that have been here for guidance and it is our responsibility to make sure they have all the tools to become "excellent" paramedics

Let's remember one thing that I think has been very negelected over the years. There is a very big difference between doing this "job" and being an EMT or Paramedic. And for those who do not understand what I just said....we cannot help you!
