I’m Jessie Carter, an Emergency Medical Technician working in an emergency. My first EMT job was in Missouri,California with a company called PacMed. In 1995 PacMed merged with several local services and adopted the name AMR. That same year I became an EMT and moved on. Since that time I have been a medical field instructor, an EMS supervisor, a firefighter and an instructor of EMT's at all levels. I’m currently an instructor with South Metro’s EMT program. It was my experiences teaching and tutoring the South Metro EMT students that inspired me to create The EMT Spot. Another point of inspiration has been my experiences as a freelance author. I have been writing for EMS journals for over five years now and have found the experience both rewarding and challenging. In that respect, The EMT Spot is as much a commitment to my own ongoing development as it is to yours.
