    Most realistic dramatization? Spinning the IO drill before using it; everybody does that, LOL... But, damn... they have to draw up their own epi from ampules? Like... WTF?

    HK'ers love these military 'academy' type shows; it's become formulaic ;)

    I actually quite like this show so far, I'm just a sucker for medical and teamwork related shows. However with that said, I am unsure if they are really trained to that level. I have a few friends who are EMTs and Firemen and their training are different, the training to become a firemen is much more difficult, strict and "bias" vs the training to become an EMT, so I am unsure why the show is portraying it's the same, unless Hong Kong uses a different system or the show is dramatizing the field

    You might find this of interest; watch the video there on the page. This is the FDNY EMT requirement. It goes through their physical testing. Also, it seems that a candidate must already have their EMT certificate before being put on the list to be hired by NYC.

    thanks! my friend is probably using this reference https://www.mass.gov/service-details/learn-about-initial-training-requirements-for-ems-personnel

    I helped my friend passed his test a couple months ago, but I'm still not that familiar with our system. I know he wants to be a firemen but he's already considered overage and doesn't meet some of the requirements

    Thanks for your response. Given that both NY State and Mass, has similar requirements, I would think that the majority of the US is likely the same; that prehospital type personnel get their training in relatively less physical settings than fire personnel. That is, unless they were firemen first, that were then cross trained as EMTs. I too, had tried out for the fire department right after I'd gotten out of the military. I was in great shape at the time. I trained further for almost six months and I'd gotten a pretty good score on that physical, but the overall test was later thrown out because of a lawsuit by blacks and hispanics, complaining that the test was not fair to them. When the test came around again several years later, I was already doing something else so I missed out on it.

    thanks for serving!

    all my friend told me was he's already at a disadvantage because most fire departments prefer those under 30 and have had military backgrounds which both he does not meet, he said he'd be lucky if he can get a position at a smaller town but even that is unlikely. He still wants to be an EMT though. He's giving up a high paying office job to get his hands very dirty, i think it's very noble and worth respecting, but it will be a significant salary decrease for him

    Honestly, he could have just held onto the window guards instead of trying to jump back across.
