In this week’s quick clip, hosts Chris Cebollero and Kelly Grayson discus a San Diego firefighter who got in an altercation with a man filming a patient on a stretcher at 2015 Comic Con. 

Cebollero and Grayson repeat the message that EMS providers should operate under the assumption that they’re being recorded, and that anything they say could wind up in the newspaper. 

“Shut your mouth, do your job and ignore the camera,” Grayson said. Cebollero reminds us that there is no right to privacy in a public place. Rather than engage with someone filming, EMS providers should go about their business and deliver the highest level of patient care. 

“Let someone video you as you’re doing an outstanding job,” Cebollero said. “And put that on the Internet.”
