Street medic's bring me your tired,your poor, ...etc. ........12th year with SMS, wouldn't trade one day of it.
Remote Paramedic (Current Employee) –  Lafayette, LAJanuary 9, 2019
I transitioned from a street medic in Charlotte NC to a remote medic with SMS in 2008. I will say to all interested in a remote medic position you will not regret it.

I haven't had to take vacation in almost 12 years, my rotation schedule for many years was two weeks on and two weeks off, my current schedule is 3 weeks on 3 weeks off which allows for a lot of quality family time at home with loved ones. The pay is not at the top of the scale but its not bad either. if you consider all of the training and courses and certificates SMS will pick up the tab on its a good deal over all. The health insurance is good also.

Yes the gas and oil industry had a huge downturn in 2010 but SMS never laid any of us off, they took care of us. We had to cut back and work as a team but no one went hungry. The oil and gas industry is coming back and will soon be full bore again, get your foot in the door now.

SMS has a family atmosphere where you are valued and not just a number, its a great place to work. I highly recommend it to paramedics who are looking for decent pay and a killer schedule and I recommend SMS to those Medics who desire to get out of the grind of the street and all that it brings these days where EMS agency's.have evolved into corporate ran operations not concerned with Pt care or crew retention. This is NOT one of those places. If you are not a procrastinator and stay on top of things, are resourceful and detail oriented and do not require micro management you will do well on the type of assignments SMS offers.
Pros
The company man pays for 3 meals a day, the BR hands do your laundry, once you are here for your 3 weeks you dont have to spend a dime.
Cons
The weather can make travel challenging at times, usually not for long.

Better than parent company Acadian. If you don’t mind being away from home or isolation you can make pretty good money. The offshore life isn’t for everyone however. It’s not something I recommend making a career out of.

great place to work if you can operate independently. Tough schedule away from home/family for 2 weeks, but back home for 2 weeks is very nice.

Extremely well organized company. Management is very well focused on the changes in the industry and effects on business. Management does not micro manage field employees. Does follow the ups and downs of the oil industry. Overall a great place to work.
