CONCORD, N.H. — After the indictment of a Concord man accused of falsely re- certifying emergency medical technicians, EMS instructors in New Hampshire say they worry the situation has damaged the public's trust and state authorities are taking steps to make sure it doesn't happen again.
"This is a huge black eye in New Hampshire and every EMS instructor-coordinator out there who is competent, caring and trustworthy... is really upset that one bad apple made us look bad," said Clay Odell, chief of the Bureau of Emergency Medical Services.
