Basic Life Support

Nothing profound today. I just want to send a shout out to my BLS backup.

I know there are plenty of places in this country where they send just two EMTs to every call. In most cases it works out OK, but sometimes you just need that extra set of skilled hands. I’m fortunate to work in a well staffed, tiered response system. We send BLS to the BLS calls, ALS to the ALS calls, and both to the really serious stuff.

Guys, you know who you are, and I thank you all for watching our collective backs.
