Hey all! I am currently living just south of Chicago and looks as though I will be relocating to Pawleys Island. Anyone from the area or familiar with Pawleys or Horry County? Would love to make a few friends here and get a feel for EMS down there. My parents live in Pawleys so it is a good choice for me. Thanks in advance! Barb

Luke, look down a few posts and there's quite a list of potential employers in the South Carolina Low Country.

Hello everybody, I am glad I found thid site! My name is Luke Gale. I have been a paramedic for the Chicago Fire dept, and Oakland Fire Dept. for 7 years. I am relocating to the Charleston area this fall for family reasons. Any suggestions on where i could get a good start continuing my medic carrer? I was thinking as a tech at MSCU to start then hopefully county service or fire. Thanks for any advice!

Does anybody know of any Critical Incident Stress De-Briefing teams in South Carolina? I am interested in trying to get one started in my county and would like some information on certification classes etc.

I work for Charleston County EMS. Let me know if you have any questions!!

I'd go with Charleston. Depends on whether you want modern equipment and lots of experience (also stuff to do when you're off). A medical school, lots of beaches and a great group of medics to work with. Very positive place!

Hi to all of the friends I have not met in SC yet. I am a PA paramedic with 9 yrs experience as a medic and a total of 19 yrs in EMS as a 1st Responder and EMT-B. Like several other people here I am looking to relocate to a coastal area of SC. Nothing against those in the mountains, I grew up at the Jersey shore and miss sand in my shoes. I have read the other posts with comments about different departments and I will be following up on those leads. I did apply to Horry County after meeting a FF/medic on a recent vacation. He said although Horry County requires everyone to be cross trained most of the young guys want the glory (?) and excitement on the fire side so I should be able to get as much time on an ambulance as I want. does anyone know of any other fire departments that would let me spend my time on the ambulance rather than requiring rotation on the fire apparatus. I love those people on that side of emergency services, it's just not my thing. Blood, guts, broken bones & holding little old ladies hands are what I live for.
