NAEMT Members Receive Discount for EMS1 Street Survival Seminar

Oct 20, 2011

NAEMT sponsor EMS1.com, the leading online resource for EMS professionals, has teamed up with Calibre Press to present the EMS1 Street Survival Seminar at Bally’s Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City, N.J., December 13-14. All NAEMT members can receive 15 percent off this seminar using the discount code NAEMT15.

The seminar is designed to provide critical, lifesaving training and education regarding potential threats that EMS practitioners encounter on the job. The course will cover a variety of topics, including threats posed by gangs, hidden weapon dangers, PTSD prevention, dealing with intoxicated and potentially combative people, restraint techniques, removing weapons of opportunity, and more.

Instructor and course leader Mike Taigman says: “EMS is involved in nearly every shooting, stabbing, riot, gang fight, and bombing in the world. The potential for us to become victims of violence from patients, family members, and bystanders is higher than ever. It’s time for us to quit relying on luck and learn real skills for staying safe.” Taigman has worked with EMS organizations worldwide for the past 37 years and has presented at hundreds of conferences. He teaches graduate school in the Emergency Health Services Program at the University of Maryland and works with several large 911 EMS systems in California.
