Redesigning Volunteer EMS Podcast

Everywhere you look, some pundit or EMS consultant is saying that volunteer EMS is in peril, yet the solutions they propose are the same ones that have been failing for 25 years. In the Redesigning Volunteer EMS podcast, host Nancy Magee and her guests explore novel, real-world solutions to what ails your volunteer agency. Nancy brings a businesswoman's perspective with the heart of a volunteer, and shows you real-world examples of how you can reverse the trend and turn your squad around. Redesigning Volunteer EMS: It's the podcast for EMS volunteers, by EMS volunteers.
