By Thomas L. Little
Every EMS service has many opportunities to build and maintain community support. Providing top-notch patient care is a priority, but public education and outreach pay big dividends, too.
The demand for up-to-date, timely health and safety information is greater than ever before.

Your organization will also become a respected household name, and your community’s leaders will be there when you need them.
