Welcome to EMFirst!

Welcome!  We wanted our first blog post to give you some background on the blog and some idea of the directions in which we hope to be heading.  Please contact us with any questions or issues that you think we may have skipped.  

EMFirst was first conceived in Spring 2015 by authors Benn and Pratik as a way to bring EMS into the #FOAMed revolution.  We have a strong passion for pre-hospital medicine and all that is related and want to bring our small amount of combined knowledge to the global EMS community however we can.  We love the idea of FOAM and think that knowledge, especially that which can improve medical care in any way, is all but wasted if not freely and openly shared with anyone who's listening.  We'll be using a blog format for the time being, with posts coming anywhere from weekly to monthly.  Subject matter will be pertinent to EMS, but will range from actual patient care to system operations to tangential topics that we just feel like talking about.  Bear with us while we get started, and thanks for coming along for the ride!
