Good day and welcome to this week’s episode of the MedicCast. I’m your host, Jamie Davis the Podmedic and I’d like to welcome you to this week’s show. In this week’s EMS news items we’ll look at one article on how South Dakota is looking at changing up their ambulance staffing requirements in order to improve volunteer ambulance crew staffing.

Then in this week’s special interview tip segment I have John Newton from the Medic Life TV podcast and Youtube channel on the show. What’s his new EMS show about and where can you find it? We’ll find out later in the show after the news.

Also, I’ll be recording interviews in the Physio-Control booth at EMS Today at the end of this month and I want to meet you so come by and say hi and check out the amazing EMS patient care tools from Physio while you’re there. I look forward to seeing you.
