Some Blog Housekeeping Stuff

Howdy everyone! Just Ckemtp with some generic blog housekeeping stuff for the regular readers

Dear State of Illinois EMS…

State of Illinois EMS… We have to have a little talk. Can we save our relationship?

Something I found in the Iowa State EMS Protocols

This is an excerpt from the newly released State of Iowa Statewide EMS protocols that I’d like to bring to the attention of the EMS blogosphere. Bravo to the State of Iowa for giving us the tools to improve the profession!

Sunday Randomness – Some EMS Pet Peeves

My Sunday Randomness seems to have devolved into a rant about some of my pet peeves in EMS. There’s some old crusty complaints in there, I know… but every dang one of them will improve your care.

Happy Wednesday!

One thing I’ve noticed since moving to this new blog network (Http://www.FireEMSblogs.com if you haven’t been to the main page yet) is that my blogging worklad has increased exponentially.  The other thing that I’ve noticed is that I’ve been getting mention from some big name bloggers and I’m honored to be included in such a […]

A Shoutout to TOTWTYTR – The NAEMT? What?

I’m linking to TOTWTYTR, one of my favorite bloggers. I’m also calling out the NAEMT. Is there anyone who supports this group? Would someone come here and explain to me what the NAEMT does?

I am a paramedic trying to advance the idea that the Emergency Medical Services can be made into the profession that we all want it, need it, and know it deserves to be.

    The Home Cook vs. the Professional Chef – What EMS Can Learn from Cooking
    Cookbook medicine. The Medical Director of my Paramedic School...way back when...was fond of saying that. It was a term I took seriously, and wasn't afraid of branching away from those "recipes".

    Red Lights to the Left of them, Blue to the right! – Coloring Emergency Lighting
