EMS Week

Celebrating EMS week!

Today we’re starting off our week by celebrating EMS week. The theme for 2020 is “Ready Today. Preparing for Tomorrow.” This will last from May 17th-May 23rd. This brings the community and their local EMS together. Different communities do different things. EMS week also helps to educate others and help celebrate with games and cookouts sometimes. Each day of the week gives us something to learn about:

  • Monday – EMS Education Day
  • Tuesday – Safety Tuesday
  • Wednesday – EMS for Children Day
  • Thursday – Save a Life
  • Friday – EMS Recognition Day

Each of these days represent safety, and something to bring the community and health care workers together. During this pandemic, please be mindful of social distancing and large gatherings. We can still observe our EMS through this event. Thank you for all your support, strength and help during this pandemic. You can also share and find more information if you use #NationalEMSWeek.

Listening To Podcasts

What Are Podcasts?

Before I listened to Podcasts, I had no idea what they were. I just figured they were people talking about stuff, no glitz or glam. I was wrong, and surprised about how much I enjoy certain ones. Podcasts are defined as: an episodic series of digital audio or video files which a user can download to listen. Alternatively, the word “podcast” may refer to the individual component of such a series or to an individual media file

When Is A Good Time To Listen To A Podcast?

You can literally listen to Podcasts anywhere you would like. They can be downloaded beforehand if there is no internet services or you can stream them directly off of a website. I never used to listen to podcasts. I didn’t exactly know what they were and I figured it was boring stuff. You can listen to them at work, in the car on a road trip, taking a bath. You can really listen to them wherever you would like. I just started listening to them at work. I don’t have the typical “9-5” job. Working as an EMT I am on an ambulance for my WHOLE shift. We work in there, hang out in there, eat in there and pass the time listening to podcasts. Every Wednesday I have the same partner and she loves these things. She kept talking about them and finally she said we had to listen to one. So we ended up listening to a podcast called Crime Junkie. The Podcast series is based off of true crime. She really draws you into the evidence and the story that is being told. This is now one of my FAVORITE ways to KILL time.

Where Can I Find Them?

There are multiple places you can stream or download Podcasts:

This is just a handful of suggestions of Podcasts that touch on different topics. If you know of any other good Podcasts please feel free to spread the knowledge! I hope you find a podcast to die for.
