How EMS1 Chooses Content

This weeks podcast is joined by’s Greg Friese. Greg took some time with Jim to discuss just how a big EMS site like chooses content to show it’s readers.

This was a very interesting episode and will give you a behind the scenes peek at where all that content and subject matter comes from when you click on that EMS1 link.

Plus Greg and Jim talk about click bait headlines and the idea of when a subject is “too soon”.

EMS Rapid Fire Show | December 2012

We love the first show of the month since it lets us talk about a bunch of topics and open the floor to the listeners so any topic is fair game. This time around we highlight ambulances getting booted, FDNY Chief no confidence vote and transporting patient family members in the ambulance and even if they should be there at all.

Plus for December, we will be giving away a gift each show. But in order to claim the gift you have to listen and get the special code referenced. So take a listen and be the first to post the code word mentioned in the comments below to claim this weeks gift.

What Role Does The Media Play For EMS?

How EMS is perceived is important for many reasons. Some of this perception can be controlled by what you do or how active your agency is in it’s community.  The media can also have a part in this as well and many times it is more negative than we would like. Take a listen to the discussion on the medias role in how EMS is perceived. What can we do better? Is there anything we can change or control? Post your opinion below.
