Hey there, I have my EMT(W) (Emergency Medical Technician with a Wilderness emphasis) because I guide backpacking trips in the summer. I think this is a marketable aspect for when I apply and so I am trying to use a little wisdom in trying to determine what affiliation I should gain a sponsorship with. I would prefer to take a sponsorship with the local Search And Rescue unit however I am wondering if a sponsorship with an ambulance company, the Red Cross, or a fire dept. would be more beneficial when it comes time to apply. Any insight, especially from those who have gone one path or the other, would be entirely appreciated. Merry Christmas everybody - and hey, make sure to enjoy life and not stress out to much.
