Some cool News #215

Howdy everyone!

Did you miss me? I actually blogged something last week. It was *actually EMS related* and it wasn’t depressing.

Yea, I’m proud of me too.

I have some cool news type things that I want to tell you on this Cold Wisconsin Saturday afternoon.

FireCritic’s 2011 Fire/EMS Blog of the Year Contest

Our friend the FireCritic has announced the opening for nominations for his 2011 fire/EMS blog of the year contest. Yours truly has been nominated, along with some awesome other fire and EMS bloggers who’s names you will most likely recognize. The rules for the contest can be found here. Please nominate your favorite bloggers, and then go ahead and vote for me anyway 🙂 (Yea, I used a smiley face in a blog post. It’s my blog and I know it isn’t a text message… but I set the rules here.)

Here’s the link:

JEMS type news

Did you see me in the print version of JEMS not once but TWICE this month?? I was floored, really. I don’t know how I pulled that off. The mention of my name and this blog on Page 7  (really! OMG) was to announce my upcoming column on It will begin in February and will focus on how I want the profession of EMS to progress in the future and EMS 2.0. I plan on taking this Prime Time, folks. Please help us all move the football down the field like you all have been doing so far.

Something that I think may be cool… do you?

One of my 2011 resolutions is to be in an airplane travelling somewhere in the country each month of the year. Febrary is open thus far, and March will be to EMS today in Baltimore. Want me to come visit? Ice down some beverages, get an extra blanket, and I may just come and ride along with you a day or so in the future. Every service I ride with will get a write up here in LUTL and maybe elsewhere if I can get it published. If you’re interested, shoot me an e-mail, tweet me, or something. I’d love to do some cool EMS tourism.

It’s good to be back, y’all. Thanks for sticking with me.

  • Where do you want to go? I think it would be cool to do ride alongs in Wake County, NYC, LA, and somewhere really rural like Alaska or Montana.

  • Ckemtp

    I would LOVE to do Wake County (Hey Skip, you readin this?), Alameda County, CA; Plover, WI; Detroit, MI; and WECADEMS

  • Errr….Ahem!!!

    Unless of course you don’t really love me 🙁

  • seo

    Keep track of all your frequent flier mile accounts in one place. The site updates your accounts continually.

  • There are some really cool features on the AFD100, such as the electronic power attenuation which can take the wattage of the head anywhere from 100 watts …
