3 Craigs List Uses for EMS Educators

I am a Craigs List junkie. I am always scouring for my next used bike or some other item of interest. Here are three EMS Education uses for Craigs List.

1. Buy/Sell training manikins.

2. Find free or buy gently used furniture for your simulation lab.

3. Find models with specific medical conditions for photo and video shoots or simulation labs.

Scott Snyder shared on EMSEduCast episode 119 how he uses Craigs List to find models with very specific medical conditions for his case based learning program. Brilliant!

How have you used Craigs List as an EMS Educator or EMS Professional? 

This is how I use an RSS Feed to find items on Craigs List.
