Every EMS Psych Call Needs A Social Worker

… Said no one in EMS ever.

This episode of the show talks about the idea that social workers should be responding to EMS psychiatric calls instead of law enforcement.

Great for LE (we all know they hate those calls anyway). But bad for EMS.

Plus we talk about that age ole topic of EMS pay, provider retention and becoming an EMT or paramedic.

The Response To COVID Effects On EMS

After watching a video news article on the FDNY response to EMS members and their struggles with mental health during the COVID 19 Pandemic. We decided to talk about the lack of support that seems to be offered to EMS professionals after events like COVID.

Is this anything new? The mentality of suck it up and keep going seems to be business as usual. But the environments that EMS are facing these days is anything but.
