Many private EMS companies specialize in the assessment. Ongoing treatment, and transport of patients from healthcare facilities to other specialized care. While non-emergency transport may sound less exciting than other EMS career paths, the patients encountered in these environments can often be far more critical than those encountered in the “911” system.
Experience Needed/Experience Gained: The interfacility/non-emergent transport field is a great environment for EMT’s with little to no experience to get their start. While still a sustainable career path in and of itself, an EMT will gain the communication and assessment skills necessary for being a compassionate and professional provider.
Expected Potential Earnings: Salaries for an EMT working interfacility transport often start at minimum wage increasing over time and increased experience.
