When They Ask For A Doctor and You Show Up

EMS This is a great reboot session with Greg Friese and remember that EMS Boot Camp sessions can now be found at EMSSEO.com.
For this episode we ask: “Have you ever helped the man down, stopped at an MVA or even performed CPR while off duty?”

As EMS professionals we sometimes find ourselves in a position to act while off duty.
For this Office Hours Greg and Jim talked a little about doing just that. You never know when someone may call out “Is there a doctor in the house?”. You would probably be surprised that they would prefer an EMT anyway.

I would love to hear your off duty story. Share it below in the comments.
