Tip of the Week: EMS Partnerships With Public Health

This week on the tip of the week, I bring you a segment from our recent trip to NACCHO Annual conference in Dallas, Texas. This is a conference for local health officials from across the country. Chris Montera, from the EMS Garage, and I got the chance to sit down and chat a little bit about the importance of working closely with our local health departments as EMS professionals. There are a host of programs and initiatives from local public health departments that could be put in place as interactions with local emergency medical services. From preparedness to prevention, public health is the perfect partner for much of what we do in EMS. Here’s that segment we recorded last week.
