Throughout my years in EMS, I have found that partners are what make or break your shift. They are literally the one thing that can single-handedly turn a good day bad, or a bad day good. They are the glue that holds together your sanity.

Good partners are a no-brainer. When it’s good, you know it. Calls flow well, you laugh together, you complain about the same things, you match each other’s work ethic (or laziness), and you easily agree on what to eat (extremely important). When things aren’t going so well, it can be a bit tricky to figure out the cause. Are you just having a bad day? Is your partner a jerk? Or are you the jerk?

Here’s a little flowchart I created to help with assessing your partner situation. If you still need help, keep reading. I’ll break it down even further.
