Ok, so I have made the big switch from EMS supervisor to Truck/Roving officer and it has been a month. It is a completely different beast. As an EMS supervisor, the work came to me, I had no time to sit back and relax, I was constantly on the go. However as a truck officer, I find there is more down time. I am spending time getting to know my truck and crew. I have already had a few issues but nothing that I couldn't deal with. Unfortunately, my comfort level with my new crew and my general responsibilities have made the transition harder than expected. Not that I didn't know the crew before I joined them, I just feel like a bit of an outsider. My crew is great and although I have already had to put paperwork on one of them, we seem to be melding. I am going to do a bit more shift planning starting tomorrow.
Directly supervising individuals and apparatus is significantly different than supervising an entire shift's EMS.
I will post after my shift tomorrow.
