Pennsylvania EMS needs CPR?

In my daily cruising through EMS news clippings I came across this editorial in the Morning Call newspaper covering Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania.

It seems that both staffing and funding shortages have ravaged many agencies in Pennsylvania. The Morning Call newspaper seems to think that it is a bit odd the state requires municipalities to provide (and fund) police and fire services--but not EMS.

I agree with the newspaper. On the heels of EMS Week, the timing couldn't be better for this type of support.

I was in Bucks County last year and met some very nice and highly dedicated EMS instructors and providers. I sincerely hope you get the funding and recognition you deserve.
