Presenters: Kris Kaull
Throughout the history of EMS are little known facts and trivia that have shaped today’s EMS systems or are just simply entertaining to hear about. When was a plunger marketed as a CPR device? What was the real influence of the TV show Emergency!—and which two cast members were married to each other in real life? Which EMS medical director has the largest collection of antique ambulances? In this session, paramedic and entrepreneur Kris Kaull, a member of the National EMS Museum Board of Directors, will outline how EMS history can educate us on the past and spark creativity in younger generations. Learn how the National EMS Museum is working to preserve the story of EMS, and how leaders like you can advocate and engage in sharing that story with others.
