Sharing our experiences with the new generation of EMS providers is important to help improve patient care and even EMS systems. As a new provider or maybe someone who is new to an agency you want to get that respect from the senior people. You want to be viewed as a great EMS partner. My friend and lead instructor with NYC LaGuardia Community College’s Paramedic Program Steven Kanarian is going to join me in the first ever EMS Boot Camp Mini-Series.
Steve is going to bring his over 25 years as an EMS field provider and instructor to this one of a kind online presentation series and share his inside tips blended with actual field cases to help you get a true perspective on what you really need to know as an EMS provider, from a field point of view.
These sessions have been broken down over the next few months and the first one coming up on January 27th, 2011 will have Steven discussing his inside tips to run cardiac arrests, improve intubation skills and also some of the new AHA changes for 2010 recommendations. This first installment of the series will kick things off by giving you a solid understanding of these situations from a field perspective.
Future sessions will continue with topics like:
- MCI management and lessons learned from Mass casualty and USAR experience.
- Trauma assessment tips with poignant cases to learn from.
- USAR lessons learned, how to prepare for a USAR career and some experiences never shared from September 11, 2001
I have worked with Steven in the past and he always delivers a great presentation with a lot of little sidebars that are the true gems in any lecture.
The best part is that these sessions are all held online right from your computer. All you need is an internet connection and speakers. So you can sit comfortably in your seat, drink your beverage, have a snack and enjoy this one of a kind content right from your home.

BTW – I am always looking for instructors with interesting topics to join me for Boot Camp sessions. If you think you have a topic that would be interesting for the EMS community, give me a shout at jhoffman(at)ems-safety.com
