It was great to attend and present at the 2014 Vermont EMS conference up in Killington, Vermont October 17-19. Seth Hawkins, MD and I both provided two different presentations to include, Community Relief Medic Designs for EMS First Responders, Cross Pollination of Recreationalists and Rescue Services for Increased Rescue Capabilities, Epinephrine Update, and Bringing EMS into the Backcountry. We enjoyed the opportunity to mix and mingle with some of Vermont’s finest EMS providers as well as connecting with many of our Northeastern friends and associates. It even snowed a little on the last day, revealing a frosty ridge about the ski resort. Cheers to the State of Vermont, one of the most rural and backcountry states on the east coast!
