Dear EMS1 Subscriber,
Welcome to the Star of Strife, the newsletter dedicated to hard-hitting investigative journalism, uncovering the hidden stories shaping the EMS service.

In this edition, we take a close look at how one frequent flyer is receiving experience credit toward a paramedic certification and Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump announced a plan to use ambulances for mass deportation. Meanwhile, read how one EMT's Big Gulp cup is driving his paramedic partner to contemplate assault on the slow drinker.

Also, don't miss our exclusive on how an agency's "Cops Slap Here" sticker is solving a major EMS problem, and one rural EMS agency explains how they braced for the worst while transporting a highly inebriated man.
