Top 3 Thank Yous of 2010

I know how you internet folks love lists so how about the top 3 people I want to thank for making this year a grweat one:

1. A tie between Mark Glencorse and Ted Setla.  At this point you should all know why, but these two guys took an idea and turned it into something I am very proud of.  Without their support, creativity and determination, most of what I mention here and around the Country would be simply on a screen instead of taking on a life of it’s own.  And not just my words and ideas, but those of a new generation of practitioners, finally finding out there are more out there wanting to do better than we are led to believe.

2. Charlotte, Blake, Jon and everyone at Zoll Medical.  If you ever met me in person at a show or event, chances are it was because of the generous support of Zoll Medical and their team.  Baltimore, Denver, Indianapolis, Dallas, all those trips and all those hours on the show floor meeting you all was because a company saw a chance to be a part of something new.  Something so new even the creators had no idea what was going to happen.  Zoll jumped in with both feet and has been there every step of the way for me and I will always accept a place in their shadow for as long as they’ll let me tag around.

3. You.  You reading this little therapy experiment that literally saved me from insanity.  It completely overran me this year, causing stress and strife in the real world, but reading comments from new and familiar names alike gives a sense of community I can’t really describe in words.  When I see someone has taken the time to even visit the site where I ramble on about myself, let alone leave a comment, it means a lot.  And not just here, but for the entire Chronilces of EMS movement/Community/gang/whatever we are, EMS 2.0, you name it, none of it would be happening without you guys taking the time out of your day to read what others think and comment, discuss, act and force change.  That’s huge, so thank you.

I haven’t been feeling well as of late and will be taking one of those famous blogger breaks for a little bit.

Cover my calls?

  1. Rest well, spend some time recuperating and we’ll see when you return. You do a hell of a great job and I appreciate it every time I see one of you out there in public. If I kiss a fire truck in the snow, will my lips get stuck ?~?

  3. It has been a great year. It was a blast bumping into you and drinking a pint with you in Baltimore and Indy! Take a break, you deserve it. I will cover your calls on the engine!

  5. I am simply humbled that we came together the way that we did. Thank you Chris Montera for having the entrepreneurial mind that you do! To work with other passionate people on a project simply makes every sacrifice we make worth while. Zoll Medical and even more specifically Charlotte and Blake are 2 people I have to say are hands down the people to thank for giving support to an idea and only because they believed in us! We love you guys.

    Here is to many more great adventures this year with you, Mark and the growing CoEMS team!

  13. Sodit!!!

    I’ve been having PC (well, internet) trouble for a while and have not been able to read my favourite blogs for a couple of months (don’t ask!). Now I come back, and the magnificent Happy Medic is taking a no-doubt well earned break.

    Isn’t my timing just excellent!!??

    Justin, mate, please get well quickly. Not only do your patients need you, all your blog devotees do as well.

    However, don’t come back until you feel 100+%. A thing of quality is always worth waiting for, and your blog is Quality with a capital Q.

    ten seasons until 2011; Millar and Gough left the show in 2007.
    You may also discover items that the rating didn’t let you know about, but that
    can impact your selection. The football club pays for all the things for little players including food, teaching materials,
    teaching fee and training facilities.
