Just hired for a position as a HEMS flight paramedic! The excitement is overwhelming right now! Overwhelmed at the task ahead of me but looking forward to the challenge. Just hoping they don't soon realize I was the one that got through the cracks! Thanks for all of your input and knowledge. Been a lurker here for quite a while.

Congrats...

 

There are a lot of threads with advice for first hires that you may want to read over, and get a sense of what to expect.  

 

Also some opinions on what to do and what not to do.

Congrats.

 

Ditto what mike said. Go back and read the threads.

 

1. Don't walk into the tail rotor.

2. Check your EGO at the door.

3. You're basically a really fast taxi cab

4. Learn something about weather.

5. Speak your mind if something isn't right. You don't want to be the next NTSB Docket #

6. In the end, it's simply just a job....NOTHING MORE......Walk away if you have to....It's not worth dying for.......

 

Good Luck.

JW
