Paramedic - Confined Space Rescue (Domestic Project Team)

Employer: Remote Medical International
Location:  U.S. Based

The Role:

This is an exciting role within Remote Medical, where you will be part of a newly formed team specifically created to be tasked with projects within the United States. This role is a great opportunity for those of you looking to break into the remote medical field! These projects can provide those with a willingness to learn, a firm foundation of proactive solo clinical care, workplace safety initiatives, and other aspects needed to be successful in a remote environment. You will operate in a solo capacity in a clinic type setting providing emergent and basic care with access to top-tier telemedicine services through our Global Communication Center (GCC). Many of these sites are not considered remote by the Company standards, so should you need to evacuate a patient to definitive care, you would activate the local emergency response system. This is a "mitigate and treat on-site" position and not a transport role.

Additionally, this role will oversee and participate in confined space rescue operations. You should have practical experience and formal credentials outlining your expertise in confined space rescue. Should an incident occur requiring rescue response, you will assess and initiate a response while activating the local emergency response system. In many cases, a local or regional confined space rescue team will respond, but will rely on you for initial scene information and activation.


Rotations are based on project needs, and we are seeking a team of paramedics with a flexible schedule. These domestic projects last on average 5-10 weeks with scheduled breaks between projects. Long-term resident type projects also become available on occasion. Additional projects often become available with less than two weeks notice. Although we have had consistent back to back projects, this is not a guarantee and scheduling is based on client needs. We are seeking to create a domestic team of paramedics with flexible schedules to provide year-round coverage for our clients.

Locations, Food, Lodging, Travel, and Reciprocity:

Those assigned to this team should have a willingness to work anywhere in the United States. It is vital those on the Domestic Project Team be flexible and willing to travel. We cover the cost of food, travel, lodging, and reciprocity in line with the company's policies and project terms. During deployments, the paramedic will often stay in hotels near the worksite and utilize company-owned or rental cars for transportation. Our credentialing team will assist you with the proper reciprocity paperwork, but if you work in multiple states, the process will require you to fill out the forms assigned to you by the credentialing team. Transport to and from the site is coordinated by the team's project coordinator, which will handle all logistical aspects of your assigned mission.


While deployed, paramedics typically work six (6) days a week on a shift-work schedule. The compensation structure is a tiered, flat-rate, hourly system.

Notes to Applicant:

NREMT-Paramedic certification is now required for this role. Should we pursue your candidacy for this role, your NREMT certification will be verified before an interview is scheduled. Although this is a non-transport role, employees may be required to drive company vehicles which will require an active U.S. drivers license from any state and the ability to successfully complete a background / driving record investigation. Due to the high volume of applications we receive, only candidates whose candidacy is being pursued will be contacted.
