Olympia-Tumwater ranked highly for competitive EMT and paramedic salaries, as well as high rankings for housing affordability, amenities and employment. Olympia-Tumwater area emergency responders make an average salary of $57,270.
“Emergency medical technicians and paramedics are the first ones to the scene in the event of a medical emergency, and they have one of the most stressful jobs,” says Paul Southerland, Lead Analyst at GoodCall. “Our goal was to identify the places where EMTs and paramedics can make a great living with affordable housing and a comfortable lifestyle.”
The report analyzed a total of 750 cities across the U.S. The rankings were based on data gathered from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, The U.S. Census Bureau, and job search site Indeed.com.
