How EMS1 Chooses Content

This weeks podcast is joined by EMS1.com’s Greg Friese. Greg took some time with Jim to discuss just how a big EMS site like EMS1.com 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”.

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.
