Mail Bag: New Deliveries to Headquarters

Books, shoes, and DVDs oh my. Check out these recent deliveries to Everyday EMS headquarters.

Novels from Paramedic Katherine Howell
I was contacted by former Australian Paramedic and novelist, Katherine Howell, about the Medical Author Chat Podcast. I am working with her to schedule a recording time soon. Meanwhile she was kind enough to send me both of her novels, [amazon-product text=”Frantic” type=”text”]033045241X[/amazon-product] and the [amazon-product text=”Darkest Hour” type=”text”]0330462407[/amazon-product]. I have already read Frantic and really enjoyed the fast-moving story of crime, paramedicine and intrigue on the streets of Sydney, Australia. Book review and medical author chat interview coming soon.

Magnum Boots USA, part of the Hi-Tec family of boot and shoe brands, sent me a pair of trail running shoes – the V-Lite Hornet. I will be putting these to the test with lots of trail running as I prepare for the first ever trail marathon on the Birkiebiener ski trail. The race, the last Saturday of September, will wind along the famous trail, with lots of climbing (at least by Midwest standards), and will be run during the height of the fall colors.

Headsweats Hat
Another piece of new training gear just arrived from – a Headsweats running hat. I love these hats because of the great combination of lightweight construction, low profile, and snug fit.

Sign Language for Emergency Situations
The DVD and translation card, Sign Language for Emergency Situations, teaches signs for emergency situations. The DVD includes English, Spanish, and ASL versions of the content.
