… a new story on EMS1.
There's a new column up on EMS1.
It's a hot-button topic, provoking visceral reactions from people on both sides of the issue.
People seem unable to discuss the issue dispassionately, so much so that some blogger friends of mine have dashed off blog posts vehemently disagreeing with a position I didn't take.
I invite your comments – either pro or con – but keep them civil. Shouting at each other doesn't promote understanding, it just makes your opponent more entrenched in their position.
Rescue 911 mastered the art of EMS stories with fairy tale endings. Seems like the entire post-Emergency generation of EMT's was inspired by Willim Shatner's narration of heroic EMS actions where everyone gets saved, the victims live happily ever after, and the EMT's all get invited to the birthday picnic a year later.
Go read, and weigh in with your comments. We'd love to hear them.
