Inside EMS Podcast: Should EMS providers be armed with less-lethal tools?
A podcast listener suggests arming EMS personnel with TASERs and pepper spray instead of carrying guns
In this Inside EMS Podcast episode, co-hosts Chris Cebollero and Kelly Grayson discuss a story regarding two firefighters who were disciplined for making false accusations regarding a police officer.
The firefighters complained that the police officer was unprofessional and used foul language. However, once the officer's body camera footage was released, the truth came out. Which, in turn, poses this question: is it time to have body cameras on EMS providers?
Chris and Kelly also answer a listener's email on arming EMS personnel with less-lethal choices such as TASERs or pepper spray.
