The Official Guide To Blogging For EMS – One of the biggest challenges facing the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) is being able to communicate with the public about what EMS is and what we can or cannot do. For years we have relied heavily on the media to help educate the public about our services. Sometimes they got it right, but most times there were half-truths or missing facts in the story.
Now media itself is seemingly under the gun. Whereas newsrooms used to have hundreds of employees, their staffing is being reduced as print circulation, radio listening, and television views are being replaced by online publications, podcasts, and online video. If they weren’t able to accurately tell our story when they were at full staff, what makes us think that they can tell it now with their own manpower shortages?
Communicating with and educating the public about EMS is something that we need to accept and own ourselves. We need to tell our own story, to communicate our own value, and place ourselves in the minds of the public as we want to be seen. Blogging can help us achieve all that, and more.
