Hosts Bradley Dean and David Blevins are joined by Joseph Zalkin, retired deputy director of Wake County (NC) EMS, to talk about violence against EMS personnel. Violence has been a hot topic as many responders have experienced violence from patients, and many states have started to consider or pass legislation escalating penalties associated with these concerns. We talk about how to empower teams to handle violence, and make sure they feel like they have the resources and support to handle a situation that may occur.
