“A Seat at the Table”

File1-SeatatthetableSo have you watched episode one of ‘A Seat at the table’ yet?

This is a sister program to our Chronicles of EMS show, that you have all been raving about!

Episode one was a discussion that Justin, Chris Kaiser and I had about EMS 2.0 and where the profession of pre-hospital care needs to go. However, what makes this series so unique is that you get to be part of it too.

Every time we film another set of episodes, which will be every time we travel to a new location to learn from another type of EMS system, there will also be an opportunity to discuss things further with professionals and leaders of the area that we are in.

And that includes you guys!

This is taking the social media concept side of the Chronicles of EMS and maximising its potential. How many other opportunities do you have to get your voice heard and your thoughts, concerns and aspirations out there to a wider audience?

So sit, back and enjoy episode 1…..We have another 5 coming your way over the next few weeks and months, then look out for details on when you can be involved in the future.

It would be great to have you take a seat at our table!

  1. I have only recently joined in the reading of EMS blogs, and have thoroughly enjoyed what I have found. I came across CoEMS through one of my many blog link jumps, and really enjoyed the first episode. What you mentioned in here got me thinking, you said you were going to do different episodes with different EMS systems. Well right now I currently volunteer in one of the largest (claims to be the largest in the US, but I'm not sure if that's been proven or not) volunteer systems. We work alongside fire, though they stay in their big red trucks. We are no longer an all volunteer system, as we do have some paid medics, however the vast majority of the people staffing the ambulances (about 400 people, last I heard) are volunteers. I was wondering if you (or others in the EMS blogworld) would be interested in visiting such a system. The mash up between paid fire, paid medic, and volunteer EMS is interesting. (For all I know, there is a blogger out there with whom you all are in contact with from this system), Either way, I look forward to learning more about your journey around the EMS systems, and your own experiences within your own system.

  2. Thanks for your kind words! We are and will always be on the look out for interesting systems to come and experience. As for bloggers who may be from your system, I dont know about that, but maybe you could be one of the first?
