Social Media Oopsies In EMS

299-Purple-256This was a special video Google + Hangout of Office Hours. A first for me and co-host Josh Knapp from wantynu.com. We talk about the growing issues with social media and EMS providers being fired and put in the public spotlight for videos, Facebook posts and tweets. Some deserving and others maybe not so much.

What do you think? Is social media and your work as an EMS provider off limits or should you be able to have  your freedom of speech no matter what it is?
