In this week's Inside EMS podcast, hosts Chris Cebollero and Kelly Grayson discuss situational awareness in light of recent events that continue to put paramedics and EMTs in danger.

"It has been dangerous for us out there for quite some time and we always need to keep up our situational awareness and keep our heads on a swivel," Kelly said.

Chris and Kelly also debate nursing versus paramedicine in their clinical issue. The discussion comes from a recent announcement by Creighton (Neb.) University offering a paramedic bridge program that's awarding certain allied health care professionals to achieve their paramedic certification in two weeks.

They also interview Dan Limmer, author, national speaker and president of Limmer Creative, about the future of EMS education. Dan also gives an overview of his new educational apps.

Dan is offering a 20 percent discount to Inside EMS podcast listeners by using the promotional code "Ambodriver." You can purchase and download via iTunesGoogle Play or on the web
