Disaster Response CareersIn this episode of the Disaster Podcast we bring back listener LN (pronounced “ellen”) with part two of her series of questions sent in to the team here at the podcast. LN asked about how she could find a job in the disaster response space and what training she might need to find that job.

Hosts Jamie Davis, the Podmedic, and Sam Bradley were joined by regular guest Dr. Joe Holley to talk about these questions with LN and to answer any other questions she might have, too. This turned into a great episode and stretched into two parts.

LN has her own podcast and site where she talks about being a nomad of sorts and discusses things like packing light, traveling the world, and her experiences living in different places with light resources.

active shooter police swatDisaster Podcast hosts Jamie Davis, the Podmedic and Sam Bradley sat down after EMS Today 2016 to talk more about the excellent Active Shooter Drill conducted at the conference. Sam and Jamie were joined by Dr. Joe Holley to discuss how the event was perceived by the students and what future students and attendees can do to prepare and learn the most from the conference sessions that Paragon Medical Education Group puts on.

The Paragon Active Shooter Drill at the conference included a little bit of classroom time, a cadaver lab, and time going over new tools on the market like hemorrhage control devices and other trauma treatment devices. Then the drill itself was run with both live and cadaver victims to lend realism to the situation.
