Guys- if anyone has any specific questions about this Task Order, feel free to PM me.

I currently fill a role on it, and for a mobile WPS2 gig, it is cush- perhaps on par with, or exceeding Jerusalem. We really don’t consider it as ‘Iraq’ as the location is Kurdistan. PSS Paramedics are either on a 105/35, or like me, an 84/42. This is the first DoS project that I’ve experienced where the overwhelming majority of the personnel are content with extremely low turnover.

The daily per diem is nice and paid weekly in cash. Restaurants and lodging are plentiful with each man getting issued their own mobile wi-fi device.

Janus pays for your required 60hrs of CME refresher, but as of now, ACLS, PHTLS, and BLS courses are on you.

'On par' can be a subjective phrase, huh...

Uh yep, I've worked both and Jerusalem is a better place. Erbil is the next best place to work IMO.

Jong- keep in mind that I'm coming from this angle as a medic.

I would be interested to comparing both TO's when it comes to the quality of life for our CLIN. TO size and positions required has a lot to do with it as well, as you know.

Jerusalem has always been considered the gold standard for WPS- but I wonder if the rotation, pay, per-diem, client relationship, threat, work load, lodging here in Erbil is gaining on the standard?

What's your take?
