It's been two decades since the September 11 terrorist attacks, but has EMS learned as a career field to be prepared, or are we simply waiting for the next event to respond? These questions were at the heart of a special episode of the Inside EMS podcast last year, which undoubtedly deserves another listen today, particularly as we continue to battle yet another generation-defining event: the COVID-19 pandemic.

In this episode, co-host Chris Cebollero is once again joined by EMS1 columnist Rob Lawrence to discuss the 19th anniversary of the attacks in New York City, Washington D.C. and Pennsylvania, and how the event affected the EMS career field. Our co-hosts also share what the day means to them in an honest reflection of this catastrophic event in America's history.
