Episode 148 is Steve McGhie. Steve is the General Secretary of the Ambulance Employees Australia-Victoria. Steve is a long history in EMS and being involved in the Union that protects the 4,100 plus EMS employees in Victoria. Did you know that the CDC reported in 2014 that 2,600 EMS workers received hospital treatment from being injured from an assault? Did you know that 75% of EMS providers reported some type of violence had occurred to them over the past 12 months? Violence against EMS providers continues to rise. Steve and I talk about this issue and how an incident in Australia has sparked a change to mandatory jail time for the person or persons that assaults the provider. We talk about ways that we can try to prevent the violence from occurring.
