From the Editors: “The world as we knew it changed September 11, 2001. The specter of disaster, whether accidental, environmental, or purposeful, was brought to our shores and into our living rooms. First responders, including out-of-hospital personnel and emergency department personnel, have always been at the leading edge of disaster preparedness. With these newly recognized threats, the public, private, and government sectors of our country are beginning to recognize the importance of EMS as an essential public service.”

The 3rd edition includes: 
•           Twenty-seven chapters on all aspects of EMS system organization and management
•           Special focus on medical oversight and accountability and the role of the EMS medical director
•           Hundreds of references to useful EMS resources and Web-based publishers
