National Park Service at 100 and EMS

I love our National Parks, Monuments, Memorials, Rivers, Lakeshores, and Seashores.

Earlier this summer I visited a fine collection of NPS units – Mount Rushmore, Devils Tower, Wind Cave, Jewel Cave and the Badlands.

And I was inspired to reflect on 100 years of the National Park Service and what EMS can learn from the NPS.

What can EMS learn from 100 years of the National Park Service?
