Each May, Emergency Medical Services professionals are celebrated during EMS Week. In 2022, EMS week is May 15 - 21. Public Safety Group wants to take this opportunity to celebrate instructors and those who work hard to ensure the next cohort of EMS providers in
the field are the most prepared yet.
Often practitioners in the field themselves, EMS instructors need to ensure their students are getting everything they need—be it in a flipped classroom, through distance learning, or in the field—with the goal that students will not simply pass tests and meet on-paper requirements, but also be prepared for the day-to-day
challenges of their chosen occupation.
EMS work is constantly evolving. EMS instructors today must go beyond the basics and must consider updated classroom formats to meet the needs of students. For example, EMS instructors need to:
Teach students how to stay safe during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic,
Teach students how to keep themselves protected while in the field,
Navigate, assess and address mental health issues in their students, and
Adapt to the shifting learning needs of today’s students while navigating changing critical care regulations and best practices.
It is fitting that the theme of EMS Week 2022, officially presented by EMS Strong and in partnership with the American College of Emergency Physicians and NAEMT, is “Rising to the Challenge.”
Public Safety Group’s approach to working with EMS educators is designed to help them rise to the challenges of a changing world. PSG’s goal is to give instructors the resources they need to empower the next generation of EMS workers,
and to ready them for work in the field. See below for four key products available in various formats.
