AMR ambulance drivers

AMR ambulance drivers are dick heads. They appear to be very uneducated and ignorant. They seem to have absolutely no social skills and lack the least ability to converse on any sort of intllectual level.Very unprofessional. Much less professional than Rural Metro drivers.

First I want to put it out there that I'm not employed by AMR nor am I an "Ambulance Driver" as you called it. Second, these drivers are called EMTs and most of them would probably stop in the rain on a busy highway to help people like you. In addition, these dickheads don't get paid enough to deal with your bullshit. So hold your tongue you prick, I'll bet your perfect!

First off, WE my friend are EMT's and we are EMT's in everystate in the united states. Your confusion may lie in one of two things, A: your just an idiot and we all on this board can write you off or B: you truely are confused see in some states they employ "ambulance drivers" they often times have no formal training in the field of EMS. Unfortunately they are making about the same amount of money we as EMT's are making in this state. I have school-college and much more advanced training than you would imagine ie: National Incident Management Systems (FEMA) 100-800 (some of those classes are days long) hazmat, ACLS, PALS, Crisis negotiation etc. I migt also remind you that I am making $10.36 an hour to be skilled labor pick up sick injured whether it rains shines snows or we are in a hurricane. You flip your car guess what I climb in that ditch and get you out. Your relative dies, It is me for my $10 dollars an hour that comes and helps. May I also add in the fact of the hours we have to work and the missed time with family and kids. I myself pull no less than a 15 hour day everyday I work. I ask you sir/mam when is the last time you have worked more than 15 hours in a day for little to no money and go tack up the next day to do it again? Think about that the next time you run your mouth about what personality we may or may not have. Were only human and we do an extrardinary job.

Actually, if you are referring to AMR Lexington... You don't pull anybody out of a ditch. The fire department does that. Unless if course you all have merged. Other markets, maybe AMR is 911, but not here.

I am sure they would stop to help if the fire department was not there or would you rather wait.

See. This is exactly what I am talking about. Instead of thought out well responses, we get uncivilized and uneducated responses that only serve to perpetuate the ignorance and ill manners that so many people complain about with AMR drivers. Rural Metro drivers just do not do that.

I would be very disappointed if the EMT's for AMS is now being rude like Rural Metro used to be. It has been a few years back but AMS used to be absolutely awesome!

I would rather call AMR anyday before rural metro, AMR is so much more professional and polite than rural metro.

I work as a paramedic for a 911 service full-time, and I work for a private service part-time, along with at a local hospital prn. I have worked for both Rural Metro (twice) and AMR. I work for neither service now, and you could not pay me enough to work for them again, even though my experience at Rural Metro was more positive than my AMR experience. AMR's management treat their employees like crap!! Especially their part-timers (both EMTs and Paramedics). They consistantly hound you about coming on board full-time constantly, and have unrealistic expectations for their part-time employees.

They expect loyalty to AMR, and don't care if you have a full-time job else where. The happiest day was when I told AMR to stick it, and informed them I can find part-time work else where that is more accomadating than what they are.

AS for Rural, they have had a lot of negative press the last few years. A federal investigation into medicare and medicaid fraud, the DEA suspended their ability to carry and administer Schedule II medications due to control issues, and they are possibly going to lose their contract in Clark County, IN due to a host of issues.

I use AMR EVERYDAY to send my patients to nursing homes,rehabs,etc. I am very loyal to AMR and think their EMT's are top notch. They do a hard job for very little pay with a smile on their face and are always professional.

I worked for AMR as well, I was a brand new shiny EMT thought I'm gonna save lives..I spent 12-15 hrs a day sitting in an ambulance taking people from Lexington to all over eastern ky. Most didn't need an ambulance but since hospital staff don't care how they open a bed just so long as its open for more money they send them and I'm forced to come up with a reason why they needed transport. Management was a joke didn't have your back ever you and the Patients where dollar signs if your weren't bending rules they would hound you til you did, its a joke private EMS is nothing more then a taxi service with flashing lights and a siren. I've had more gratification working now at a 911 service then I ever did at if your on the outside looking in take a real hard long look before you try and say they are good people.
