Topic of the Week: Predictions for EMS in 2009

I’d like to thank all of the listeners in the chatroom and our two guests on the phone lines, longtime listener and supporter of the MedicCast, Kelly and Chris Montera from the EMS Garage Podcast. Kelly has been listening to the MedicCast for a long time and has extensive search and rescue experience and wilderness EMS experience.

Chris Montera is a Paramedic in Colorado and is one of the hosts and organizers of the EMS Garage podcasts. These great panel discussions bring together leaders in EMS from around the country and talk about issues like leadership in EMS, education, and more. Check out their show at

Below you will see a list of some of the predictions for 2009. Some are good and some are bad. The real question I have is “What Do You Think?” Answer by leaving your opinions using the comments link below this post. What are your predictions for 2009?
