Dear EMS1 Member,

Mass shootings have increased in frequency since the Pulse nightclub shooting. Within the span of a week, several people were wounded and 34 people were killed in three recent active shooter events; 22 in El Paso, Texas; 10 in Dayton, Ohio; and three in Gilroy, California.

In this month's Paramedic Chief eNews, Sean Hulsman discusses emergency management concerns in the aftermath of a mass casualty incident, while Fitch & Associates addresses the physical and cognitive issues in an aging EMS workforce.
