Welcome to the April 2020 edition of Excuse My Medic (EM2). On today's show, amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, we examine all things that are keeping us up at night including how will funding help keep the EMS industry alive and how things have changed for emergency medical services within the past 30 days. New funding, less signatures, more risk. Almost like lions, tigers and bears from an old movie script.
We also have some lighter moments in our show including uplifting stories, the EMS Word of the Day and news from the EMS offbeat. Join Chuck, Ed and Gary as they help you navigate the COVID-19 waters and also provide you with a laugh or two before it's all done. So, come along with the ole guys and enjoy this edition of EM2. Stay safe out there!
Your Hosts: Chuck Humphrey, Ed Marasco and Gary Harvat
