2006 JEMS Salary and Workplace Survey

The average American works a minimum of 2,000 hours a year. That's equal to roughly one quarter of our lives and almost half of our awake time. EMS personnel, because of the nature of their shift schedules, may work even more -- averaging as much as 2,800 hours a year on a 56-hour workweek. With so much time spent at work, it's easy to understand why EMS personnel are always interested in learning how their jobs compare with others'. Am I getting a reasonable wage?

What is the norm when it comes to things like shift work, pay-for-performance and benefits? For more than 24 years, the JEMS Salary & Workforce Survey has been pulling data from a representative sample of the industry to learn what it's like to work in EMS and to compare salaries across the country. It all comes together here, in the EMS industry's most comprehensive analysis of workforce factors. So if you have questions, look no further: The answers are right here.

The JEMS Salary & Workforce Survey is conducted by the EMS/public safety consulting firm Fitch & Associates. Celebrating its 22nd year, Fitch & Associates has served a diverse range of EMS and public safety

clients in 49 states and 12 nations worldwide. Whether industry research, system design and improvement, or leadership development, the firm is known for its personal work style, innovative approaches and practical solutions.
