EMS Week 2017 - MONDAY: EDUCATION DAY

One of the biggest ways an EMS provider can impact their community is to educate the public about ways they can prevent illness or injury. Education Day seeks to highlight educational programs that serve the public as well as the importance of individual EMS provider continuing education. To celebrate Education Day:

• Host an EMS open house and offer public education presentations and training or offer to speak to local groups to share why EMS is a valuable part of your community.

• Host an EMS College Bowl competition with crews from different shifts or invite other area services and have teams compete representing each agency. Add an extra flare and include a skills competition as well.

 

• There’s often no better way to learn than from your peers. Join the online community of EMS professionals who chronicle their experiences every day by reading EMS blogs and listening to podcasts – or even consider starting your own! (http://emsblogs.com/; http://www. promednetwork.com/)
