    Not a certified EMT but am a trained First Responder. The taxidermy part has helped with that sick feeling you sometimes get from the medical calls. Although some the med. calls can be worse than a decaying animal. ;D

    I've been an EMT since 1996 and now work in the medical department of a poultry processing plant. The job of an EMT or any emercency personnel is very challenging because no two calls are the same but yet it is gradifying to know that you helped or tried to help someone regardless of the outcome! ;)

  9. I spent 9 years in professional baseball as an athletic trainer before i decided to hang it up and begin taxidermy. I had always thought about becoming a paramedic but had never had the time to take the courses. I really quickly realized how much I missed dealing with injuries and the excitement so I took my paramedic courses and love every minute of it.

    Jimmy Rimrock Yeah, they come to snuff the rooster

    EMT/Firefighter, I sort of did this backwards as I was a taxidermist for years before starting as a Vol FF, then getting my EMT Basic and then getting hired into a career FF position. Lot of people who work in Public Safety get into taxidermy as a side job because the work schedule gives them a lot of free time.

    Thanks folks......I'm registering for EMT classes and just wondering. I'm an adrenalin junkie and love working with meds, etc (pharma for a number of years). Thought it would be a good fit.
