Statement of Principles
“Best Practices” in Fire Service-Based EMS
The Fire Service-Based EMS Advocates Steering Committee has added a new feature to their website (www.fireserviceems.com). The steering committee will be gathering descriptions of “Best Practices” in Fire Service-Based EMS and posting them on their website for advocates and others to study. These articles will be posted as they are received and made available for review as readers’ desire. This electronic format for sharing current EMS information is sure to be of benefit to all fire departments: large metropolitan, other fully career, combination, and volunteer. Individuals interested in submitting articles for consideration by the steering committee can do so by sending them to Chief Dennis Compton, Co-Chairman of the Fire Service-Based EMS Advocates Steering Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org. Each article must be a maximum of 1,000 words and include a very brief Bio introducing the author. The decision of the steering committee concerning whether to post a particular article is final.
The steering committee is committed to sharing information about fire service-based EMS inside and outside the fire service community. Each submission will become eligible for recognition by the Congressional Fire Services Institute (CFSI) through their annual Excellence in Fire Service-Based EMS Honors Program. If you have not yet joined the Advocates, please visit the website at www.fireserviceems.com and follow the easy instructions to do so. We look forward to receiving your submissions. Thank you for your willingness to share your organization’s fire service-based EMS success stories with others.
