Dear EMS1 Subscriber,
Welcome to the Star of Strife, the newsletter dedicated to hard-hitting investigative journalism, uncovering the hidden stories shaping the EMS service.

In this edition, we take a close look at new 25-pocket tactical pants that give EMS providers unlimited capacity and how one department's therapy cat is adding stress rather than lessening it.

Did you recently order an EMSEats meal? Our exclusive examines why the food delivery service was shut down. Also, don't forget to read about why an EMT instructor was shamed from his classroom and why a reunion between two paramedics and a teenager was less than enthusiastic.
