Keith A. Monosky, MPM, EMT-P | From the January 2008 Issue | Tuesday, October 1, 2002


How can a job of such responsibility as saving lives be rewarded with a salary measurably less than most similar professions? This question has plagued many business and management philosophers for years. Has this contradiction changed in recent years? What's the current salary and benefit status of the average EMS provider in the nation? What regions of the country provide better pay? How does organizational structure affect compensation? And is a salary increase the greatest incentive for EMS providers? Find the answers to these and other important questions in this EMS salary and workplace survey.
