2004 JEMS Salary Survey

Data to plan business strategies & guide career moves


 
 

David M. Williams, PhD | From the January 2008 Issue | Thursday, September 30, 2004


Each year the JEMS Salary and Workplace Survey gives EMS agencies and emergency care providers valuable information that enables a reliable comparison to others in the EMS discipline. This information is often essential for many EMS organizations to plan business strategies and for individuals to make career choices and better plan for their futures. To serve in such an important manner, the information provided must be timely, accurate and reliable. 

This year, in addition to the usual salary information, the JEMS Salary Survey provides you with greater detail about the nature, origin and reliability of the information presented. This, coupled with interpretations and suggestions, will help you in your decision-making.

At first glance, you may notice that average starting salaries for most positions are modestly lower than in the previous year. This comparison, although useful, must be interpreted in context, with due regard for data origin and reliability. In order to do this effectively, let's begin with the data sources and the study methodologies.

FAST FACT:

 This year's mean Paramedic salary is $32,853.99, and the median is $33,000.00.
