    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?
     
  5. already like the show more than "the stunt"

    didn't know EMT training was this hard similar to cops/fire fighter:hmm:

    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.
