Trek MedicsThis week on the show we bring you part one of the two-part episode with Jason Friesen from TrekMedics.org. Trek Medics International is a 501c3-registered nonprofit organization dedicated to improving emergency medical systems in communities without reliable access to emergency care. They make their services available to all communities, regardless of race, religion or creed.

Trek Medics started as a loose-knit collection of your every-day responders — paramedics, EMTs, nurses and doctors — who formed a unique bond through disaster deployments and international development programs. Even after thousands of hours working on the street and in emergency departments, what really opened our eyes to the need for an adaptable and inexpensive EMS systems in developing countries was the 2010 earthquake in Haiti. Our experiences there forever forged the mission of Trek Medics.
