EMS As an Industry Projected to Explode With Growth
In the July 6, 2015 issue of Time magazine, three public safety sector job growth areas were examined. Those of the EMS, Law Enforcement and Fire Service are all projected to need additional personnel over the next ten years. According to this news magazine, Law Enforcement and the Fire Service project a 5% and a 7%, respectively, increase in the need for additional police officers and firefighters. The projection for EMS, however, was an astounding 22% increase! Much of this is due to the increasing age of baby boomers who are predicted to live longer and thus increase the demand for pre-hospital emergency medical care. As a result, new jobs for paramedics will continue to open creating a stable employment market for years to come.
