Top 5 EMS videos of 2014

Our top videos this year ranged from disturbing and serious, to seriously funny

An exclusive interivew where Christian Hospital EMS Chief Chris Cebollero described the first day on the scene after the fatal police shooting of Michael Brown topped the charts. It was our first behind-the-scenes look at the Ferguson, Mo. protests, but certainly not our last.

A video out of Vietnam also raised awareness about the need for better CPR education, especially in developing nations. The graphic footage shows an attempt to revive a child by kicking and jumping on his chest.

To pivot completely, everyone was thoroughly delighted, or should we say “happy” to watch a Wake County EMS music video to the Pharrell William’s song of that name.

Check out our other top picks below, and if you think we missed one let us know in the comments!
