“Honorable but broken” is an emotionally compelling documentary from seasoned network news producers Bryony Gilbey and Rich Diefenbach that highlights the realities of working in EMS. The documentary calls attention to the inexcusable underfunding of our first responders and the subsequent collapse of the system.
The story told by Gilbey and Diefenbach truly sums up the precipitous state of EMS. In this edition of EMS One-Stop, Rob Lawrence welcomes Bryony Gilbey and returning guest Matt Zavadsky to discuss the documentary, its planned development into a full-length production, exciting sponsorship news and commentary on the issues raised by NAEMT board members that appeared in the film.
The discussion and documentary advocate for funding and political change to the current status quo, but as Gilbey asks, “what is life worth to an elected official?”
