In his closing keynote at EMS TODAY, Steve Berry (addressing public perception of EMS) urged listeners to adopt some of the professionalism of our public safety counterparts-- fire, law enforcement and the military. He believes we’re a mix of medical and public safety, but that in order to cement an image of EMS in the public’s mind, we should accept that the public affiliates us more with public safety than the medical profession, and we should work with that perception rather than against it. If he were redesigning your EMS system, he said he would purchase Class A uniforms for everyone and would ensure they had access to effective wellness and weight management programs.
What do y'all think of those recommendations?
