About Us

Smart flight crews know their safety depends on teamwork. Emergency Medical Services Flight Safety Network Podcast is about the people who keep air medical flights safe - and how to do what they do, even if you have no experience. Flight Safety Network is the EMT who arrives first on scene of an accident. The 911 dispatcher who takes the initial call for help. The flight communication specialist who launches the air medical helicopter. The firefighter who sets up and secures a landing zone for the inbound helicopter. The flight nurse, paramedic and pilot on board the inbound aircraft. The hospital security guard who helps off-load a patient underneath turning rotors. The emergency department staff who receives the patient from the flight team. The mechanic who keeps the helicopters and airplanes flying safely. And of course, Flight Safety Network is the family & friends who support these everyday heroes. People are the 'net' in Flight Safety Network. People are the difference.

Why EMS Stands for The Flag

America is the best country in the world. “Proud to be an American” is more than a catchy slogan. It’s our way of life. If you or someone you love serves our country in the armed forces, you get my instant respect and gratitude. No discussion or debate required. And here’s the best part: I believe most Americans share this viewpoint. Most Americans respect and appreciate those who serve now, and those who served our country in the past. Why NFL Stars Should Get Off Their Knees Why should National Football League (NFL) players get off their knees and stand for the national anthem? Because standing is about respect. Standing for the national anthem is about showing respect for those who made the ultimate sacrifice and gave their lives for this country. It’s really that simple. Stand to show respect. NFL players who kneel before football games do so to draw attention to racism in America. But they disrespect everyone who ever served in uniform by doing so. NFL players don’t see i...

How To Be An Amazing EMS Mentor

Here’s the thing. If you’re good at what you do, sooner or later the day will come when someone – an employee, co-worker, student or acquaintance – comes to you for advice.

A lot of times the mentor benefits as much or more than the mentee. Why? Because the feeling you get when someone tells you they’re “living their dream” thanks to your help, is pretty incredible. It’s right up there with someone ...
