I have been quite active in podcasting recently, which I think substitutes for my lack of blogging. Anyway, most recently I was on EMS Garage, and we talked about KCFD EMS and how they aren’t hitting their own markers. Ordinarily, nothing would be said about these things, had not just a year ago Kansas City merged with MAST, giving KCFD that EMS transport component.
The banner to which they were merged: better response times. Chief Dyer there at KCFD, when faced with the stats that was his whole rallying cry seems to have abandoned the belief that response times REALLY matter. We discussed the whole thing here.
I’ll post more on this later.
