Dear EMS1 Reader,
Nicole Mittendorff's suicide has forced an overdue and much-needed conversation within EMS about bullying, harassment, and how we care for each other. EMTs, paramedics, officers, chiefs, and owners need to expose and remove bullying from their departments' culture — both on- and off-duty.

The articles in this special EMS1 newsletter, including two powerful first-person accounts of sexual assault and bullying, should inform and inspire us to make the EMS profession the best it can be for anyone who wants to be a caregiver.
— Greg Friese, MS, NRP Editor-in-Chief, EMS1
