Essential #EMS Feeds for your Blog Reader

Last week I asked, “How do you read blogs?” Many Everyday EMS Tips readers told me they use a feed reader, like Google Reader, to stay up to date on EMS and connected with their favorite bloggers.

Regular professional reading is a great habit for EMS professionals. I routinely find blogs posts that are as good or better than anything I can find in the trade publications for EMS. Blogs also give me an opportunity to immediately react to the article by writing a comment, interact with the author and other readers, and find more articles by the author.

This list could get really long really fast, but these are five of my selections for Essential EMS RSS feeds for EMS professionals. In the comments area tell me the EMS blogs (and their feeds) that you think are essential for EMS professionals.
