EMS Week 2014 has begun. Oh the fun, prizes, days off and benefits of being an EMS provider are finally bestowed upon us all.
Or – it is business as usual and the one week that is named EMS Week is shared with other events, requires us to be on a week long public awareness campaign and often is overlooked by even our management.
Hey we are not looking for too much, but maybe just like during Nurses Week you see posters and ads that say “Thank a nurse”. We could have something similar. Instead of lets show the public the ambulance, teach first aid or CPR for free and make sure we get to the ED to maybe get a free meal before the rest of the “EMS” peeps get it all. (Rest of EMS meaning ED techs, nurses, docs and housekeeping).
Join us for your EMS week joy installment.
