Leaders,
 

In an already complicated environment, EMS has been challenged in the past year by exposure risk, endless overtime shifts, PPE shortages, virtual education and ever-shifting guidance. EMS not only dug in to the task at hand, but learned to optimize efficiency, adapt to treatment in place and alternate destination transport, and ease the burden on our healthcare system, all while caring for patients with dignity and respect. 

This EMS Week, in caring for our communities, in the words of Kelly Grayson, “Take a bow EMS. Job well done.”  

Stay well,  

Kerri Hatt
Editor-in-Chief, EMS1
