is Nick Nudell. Nick has over 25 years of EMS and health care experience and has used his visionary skills to improve health care systems designs and performance. Nick is one of the founders of the American Paramedic Association, which published their manifesto this month. Though this podcast was recorded before the manifesto was made public, we discuss the manifesto, the APA, and other organizations Nick is associated with. Should all EMS providers be called Paramedics? Nick answers this question as well as we discuss the state of EMS and Nick’s cross country travels.
Episode 177 is Jan Marks. Jan was born in Pittsburgh and worked for City of Pittsburgh Bureau of EMS for 29 years before retiring due to a disability. Jan started her career on the Southside of Pittsburgh on Medic 8. Jan rose through the ranks and was the first female Field Supervisor for the Bureau promoted in 1987. Jan was a member of the Pittsburgh Public Safety Honor Guard and a dive team member. Jan played a key part of my wedding as she caught the bouquet. Jan and I reminisce about her career, her mentors, being a Paramedic, supervising, and working for the “City”.
Episode 176: Who in the public safety arena has not grabbed fast food, sweets, and a sugary drink while on duty? Does the food we eat impact the performance of EMS and Fire personnel? A report from the Ambulance Service Manager Program from Fitch and Associates dives into this subject with “Does Diet Impact Fire/EMS Performance and Outcomes”. Jaime Pospil, James Simmons, and Anthony Minge will let us know the answer to the question and provide insight on how public safety can eat better. Jamie Pospisil is a Captain with Lincoln Fire and Rescue in Lincoln, NE and has been with the agency for 15 years. This experience expands beyond a career department to include ten years of volunteer service at Southwest Rural Fire Protection District. James Simmons is the Director of Marketing and Business Development for Seals Ambulance in Indianapolis, IN. Prior to his current position, he was Seal’s Operations Manager. Anthony Minge is a senior partner with Fitch & Associates. He coordinates the firm’s educational offerings and is responsible for the firm’s reimbursement, compliance, and membership consulting services. We discuss food, the paper, the guest’s career paths, and the Ambulance Service Manager Program. The report is available on the Fitch & Associates website.
