    Does anyone know?

    Texas is currently running TWO pilot programs that start with zero experience. Really interesting stuff. Best quote from the webinar was “preceptors had no idea these students had no previous experience”. See the NAEMSE webinar here.

    EMT Shortage is hitting hard in CT

    It’s been going on in Connecticut for years too. Just because there’s a news story doesn’t mean it’s new.

    What did you do after leaving EMS as a field provider?
