TLAs galore (three letter acronyms)!
As stateside EMS systems require an introduction to the National Incident Management System(NIMS) and Incident Command (ICS), we got it, too. Nothing really new here (I’d already taken online courses on both topics), but it was great to hear how the fire services use it in the field.
Then it was on to WMD (Weapons of Mass Destruction). Nukes, Chemical, Bio and incendiary weapons. What fun! We definitely benefited from Ron’s real-world experience and his networking with other emergency professionals.
These were the last lectures. EMT written exam is all that remains of the EMT program. 🙂
