A place for EMS workers, firefighters, law enforcement and disaster workers to share their experiences
Saturday, January 30, 2010
This new blog, "Red Lights, Hot Spots and Disaster", is an attempt to encourage EMTs, paramedics, nurses, docs, firefighters, law enforcement personnel and disaster workers into sharing the stories of their professional lives. Why did you decide to be in the profession you chose? What drives you to keep doing it? Where do you see yourself in five years? What are the high points and low points of your job? We'd all like to know. Come on over and join us. Bring a story, a thought, a comment or a discussion. We'd like to hear from you.
I'm a 30+ year paramedic with experience in ambulance and fire department environments. I'm currently a consultant doing EMS training and QI for fire departments. I'm a published non fiction author and have written magazine articles, textbooks and stories. I'm completing final edits on my first novel which is heavily based on my own experiences as a paramedic, and write quarterly for "Interventions" magazine. A new project is developing a video webseries for First Responders Network called "Disaster Sam", which will highlight stories of disaster EMS workers and the "people" that work in EMS. I promote EMS social media and the intent to make the world of EMS a better place.
