In Support of Backboards

Entry Img

One of my first really successful posts years ago was “A Short Take on Long Boards” where I found myself piling on the negatives regarding our habitual dependence on the Long Spine Board. I do not feel as though I can take any credit, however, for agencies such as the Palm Beach Florida Fire Department or the New York […]

High Speed Education Where Eagles Gather

Entry Img

Dallas is the place to gather today and tomorrow if you are like me and actually enjoy the most current thinking on pre-hospital medical practice coming at you like a fire hose from the very “eagles” of our business. Unfortunately, I am not there. Instead, I was standing a thousand miles away this morning in […]

Did You Watch ‘Nightwatch’ Last Night?

Entry Img

It appears that at least in some EMS circles, the premiere of the new A&E series called ‘Nightwatch’ on Thursday (1/22) was a highly anticipated event. I don’t know if it was just a coincidence that it was also the opening day of the NAEMSP conference held this year in New Orleans, where the EMS-themed reality show was filmed, […]

EMS Today 2015 Makes Winners

Entry Img

The reason I choose to attend any conference is to improve myself, my knowledge, or my skills in some way. As an EMS professional, I have many choices in conferences to attend, but the single best meeting for me to make progress toward all of these goals is the EMS Today conference. There are many reasons […]

What is CAEMS and Why Should I Care?

Entry Img

Two weeks ago, we started a Community of Practice to discuss EMS Deployment. The larger issue of deploying resources is all about efficiency and effectiveness in care, those are also the aims of any High Performance EMS group. However, that message is too often confused with meaning simply “better, faster, cheaper”, when in practice it […]

11 of the Top 10 Tips for High Performing EMS

Entry Img

Rob Lawrence, the Chief Operating Officer of Richmond Ambulance Authority, offered these tips as an article for publication in this blog, but we decided they would make good initial discussion points in an ongoing dialog with our readers and contributors. Consequently, each of these points is made as a separate page under the EMS Deployment […]

Fore Thoughts of EMS Today 2015

Entry Img

For the last few years I have written my initial impressions of conferences in blog posts shortly after, or sometimes even during, a conference. The post “Quick Thoughts from the EMS Today 2012 Conference,” for instance, described my first EMS Today experience and captured the fact that I actually had the opportunity to give ‘two thumbs up‘ […]

We Need Some New Stories

Entry Img

We always hear that EMS is still a relatively new discipline. And in the scheme of medicine, or even public safety, that is certainly true. But we shouldn’t let the fact of its youth keep us from acknowledging that it has already been around long enough to accumulate some of its very own antiquated dogma. If you […]
