a new approach to new year resolutions

For many, a new year means a fresh start. Setting new goals and new resolutions. You may have set a few of your own. You definitely saw your fair share of other people’s on social media.

what if santa was also an EMT?

You can’t say the thought hasn’t crossed your mind. “What if that allusive man in red had a day job?” And not just any job, but worked as an EMT. Here’s how we’d imagine Santa’s epic flight around the world would happen. You know...after pulling a twelve hour shift the night before.

rosana’s survivor story | a living inspired story

It started back in October of 1999 when I was at a doctor’s appointment for my son Nathen. I mentioned I had found a lump on my left breast. They performed a biopsy to figure out exactly it was. That’s when they determined it was stage 4 breast cancer. From Nathen’s point of view, it was all very confusing,“I didn’t fully understand what breast cancer was at the time, but I knew it had to be something serious.”

8 reasons why having an EMT best friend is awesome

Best friends make life livable. They’re the ones who “get you” better than anyone else. Like family, they’re there for you when you need them and you actually got to pick ‘em. It’s a special relationship that takes on a whole new meaning when your best friend can literally save your life.

why there’s a wait

The word “disruption” tends to have a negative connotation. But it doesn’t have to. There are big disruptions that fundamentally changed their industries, such as the progression of CDs to iPods. But what really made these products and ideas important was giving customers power and information they never had before.

9 signs you and your partner spend way too much time together

Long shifts. Life or death moments. Small work environment. It’s the perfect recipe to form a tight-knit relationship with someone you work with, but especially between EMT partners.

the start of a happy, and healthy, movement

Finding a meaningful job that gets you jumping out of bed each and every morning is easier said than done. I consider myself lucky to be doing what I love everyday: working to provide care for other people. For many in the EMT industry, they are also working their dream job, saving lives and having a lasting impact on every patient they treat. But there are times the industry doesn’t quite live up to their expectations.

being an emt is not a 9-5, white collar job

For any person who wants to get into the EMS field I just want to say that this job is not a 9-5 white collar job, but it's a 24/7 365 commitment and a calling that until you join this field you will never be able to understand. Never stop learning and look at every patient with an open mind.
