In answer to some comments, and an email I received, yes I am being promoted to Lieutenant. I don't know how y'all figured it out.
My worry about being in a delima over the EMS position proved to be a waste of good worry time. Of three of us being promoted, one took the EMS position before it could be offered to me. So, I will be a Lt. on an engine company. I still get to be a paramedic, as we run paramedic engines. We still answer EMS runs with our ambulance. I will be answering fire calls as well though. I don't know which shift or station I will be going to yet, I should find out within a few weeks. The promotion will be effective by Thanksgiving, which is coincidentally very near (read very very near) my birthday.
