Dear Paramedic Chief Reader,
Collaboration means more than getting a buy-in for a new program, or inviting representatives from different agencies into a room to talk. In this month's Paramedic Chief, Keith Griffiths talks about four ways EMS leaders can truly work together to get positive results.

On the technology front, Susanna Smith sits down with Dia Gainor, executive director of the National Association of State EMS Officials, to learn about a potential not-so-distant future where smart cars will scan themselves for damages after a crash and alert responders to any hazards.

And speaking of hazards, Louis Clark McCoy explains why EMS needs a quicker disaster response, and offers some tips on how to make it happen.

Finally, in this issue's video, EMS1 Columnist Greg Friese explains how EMS chiefs can help their crews get the most educational benefit from remote lectures.
