Dear EMS1 Member,

As we evaluate where things stand with cost collection, ET3 and EMS reimbursement after the first wave of COVID-19, it’s important to keep our mind on the mission, while considering how to move forward with modifications to response PPE, screening and tracing, decontamination practices, training and psychomotor testing.

How is your agency modifying your approach? Email us at editor@ems1.com.

Stay safe,

Kerri Hatt
Editor-in-Chief, EMS1
