Many Massachusetts EMTs' papers faked

Boston Globe, May 27, 2010

At least 200 emergency medical technicians and paramedics in Massachusetts and New Hampshire have been practicing without legitimate certification, paying for fake credentials, rather than receiving medical training, state public health officials said. An ongoing investigation has so far determined that training companies illegally authorized state credentials for first responders in at least a dozen communities. The probe is expected to continue to grow and include more communities.
