Dr. Lynn and all the folks at SSI™ did a great Job! I enjoyed the lecture and all I can say is that this course needs to be offered in longer format. I would recommend that all Hospital/EMS administrators take this course so that the information presented can be implemented. I look forward to SSI™ conducting more classes here in GAEMS.

I will be sure to have GHA and Everett County EMA attend this course. The program was excellent and I really enjoyed the presentation.
