Top 5 EMT Blogs to Follow

Connecting with other emergency medical technicians (EMT) outside your local community is often challenging. One of the best ways to connect with EMTs outside of your local community is through EMT blogs, which are created and written by and for those trained to respond quickly to emergency situations such as fires, traumatic injuries, and medical crises. Here is our list of some of the best five EMT blogs to read and follow.

1. Everyday EMS Tips
Sometimes a quick read once a day is all EMTs have adequate time for. The Everyday EMS Tips blog posts vary in length, but are typically short and packed with information. Better yet, guest authors who are EMS professionals or EMS students write the blogs, which makes for laid-back, current and relatable content. Everyday EMS gives readers a little bit of everything, from EMS tips, reviews, podcasts, videos, and case studies.
