My girlfriend and I are talking about moving to Boston area (she's pursuing a Phd) and I was wondering if anyone knew who to contact (what agency) for a Massachusetts Paramedic license. I'm nationally registered and currently working in the St. Louis MO area. I was also wondering if anyone knew what EMS agencies in the Boston area that would be a good place to work. Thanks.

From what I recall from years ago when I was considering moving there:
Boston is covered by Boston EMS, you would be hired as an EMT and then would have to compete for a medic position after a period of time (i.e. years).
Cambridge is covered by "Pro EMS"
Catalado is another private company that provides EMS for many communities
AMR and Rural/Metro both cover a lot of area, if I recall.
Fallon is another private company that covers a lot of communities.
If you're willing to travel a little bit from Boston, I've heard good things about Worcester EMS and Greater Lowell EMS (aka Saint's Paramedics).
