Attention all units in the field

All companies, cars and personnel in the field,

EMS is taking another big step closer to being recognized as a profession rather than a trade. And Medic999 is taking the initiative to get us there.

I too got lost looking for good EMT, EMS and Fire blogs. You can find dozens that link to and follow dozens more and its tough finding the ones you really like and that speak to you directly. I don't expect everyone who reads this blog to follow the ones I do, but often its a good fit.

Medic999 from the aptly titled blog medicblog999 has taken the initiative to start a kind of Blog Carnival. It boils down to a group of bloggers taking turns moderating a forum about blogs. Seems boring, but imagine a group of authors (bad comparison Happy, but keep going) getting together for a book club meeting and you're an author too.

If you ever wanted to start a blog, do it. It's great cheap therapy.

So keep your eyes on this space, or over at Medic999's spot for details as they develop.

Who knows, this may turn into a Firefighter Nation/JEMS Connect/Facebook hybrid cross-trained, turnout pant, stethoscope hanging, 4 AM call running monster of fun and information. Or not.

That is all.
