I have no idea about the St Johns area.. About two years ago I visited the West coast of NFLD, Gros Morne, Rocky Harbour, Plum Point, up to St Anthony etc.. I spent alot of time just visiting with the locals in the small stores and restaurants and always within the conversation we were asked what we did back home. Once they found out I was a medic (and my wife is a registered nurse) I swear we could have been hired on the spot. The one little town the owner of the restaurant called his neighbour who was the manager of the local ambulance base wanting him to come and meet with us. When he didn't answer the phone they gave us this guys address wanting us to go visit. lol. We didn't end up going. I definately got the impression from more than one person that paramedics were needed in that part of the province, and man its a beautiful part of the country. If you can handle the weather that is..
