Dear Paramedic Chief Member,

In this month's Paramedic Chief eNews, Mike Taigman discusses how one agency reduced response time penalty fines from over $109,000 per month to $12,000 per month, while Fitch & Associates share five strategies for avoiding costly turnover at your agency.

In addition, Al Lulla for NAEMSP writes about how the proliferation of naloxone administration by other first responder organizations provides relief for over-stressed EMS agencies.
