EMTís and paramedics are employed in a number of industries such as ambulance services, local government and hospitals.
Job prospects are good locally as many graduates find employment with local agencies.
Employment of emergency medical technicians and paramedics is expected to grow 9 percent between 2008 and 2018. Growth is partially due to the increasing call volume for the aging population. (Occupational Outlook Handbook, 2010Ė11 Edition)
