You HAVE to look at this… and The Handover Rapidly Approacheth

Peter Canning, the guy who writes the blog: “Street Watch – Notes of a Paramedic” has been just kicking blog butt lately with his series on prehospital medications. I read a lotta blog posts, but I’ve been thoroughly enjoying Peter’s stuff lately. I’d love for you to get on over there and enjoy it as much as I have been. I’m pleased as heck that he came to the www.FireEMSblogs.com network because I’ve been a huge fan of his writings for a long time.

Also, The Handover Blog Carnival (last seen over at Notes from Mosquito Hill) is being hosted right here on my little blog here. The theme is “Respect”. It will be posted on TUESDAY MARCH 30th and Submissions are to be accepted up until Sunday the 28th. Here’s a hint: GET YOUR SUBMISSIONS IN EARLY BECAUSE I HAVE ME A SURPRISE!! Yes, you really want to pay attention to this here Handover edition. So get it in early.

    What's the rules for Handover posts, Lights?

  • http://www.lifeunderthelights.com Ckemtp

    No real “rules” per se.. If you choose to write a post to fit the topic you'll get more exposure. If not, you'll be lower in the list o' links. The topic is “respect” which can be related to EMS in many ways. Make it a good one and it might make it into print as well.

    Can I use a recent post I've already published, or does it need to be new?

    It doesn't have to be new, just email the link to ProEMS1@yahoo.com

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.

    Why do Ambulances Carry Epi-Pens?

    More EMS Scenarios for the Real World
