Dear EMS1 Subscriber,
We are grieving the deaths of five Dallas police officers and wishing for a full recovery for seven others who were wounded Thursday night. This terrible event is a stark reminder of the dangers all public safety professionals face at mass gatherings, which can quickly flash from peaceful to deadly.

This newsletter features the latest news from Dallas and the EMS communityĆ¢€™s reaction to the shootings. Also, listen to a special edition of our Inside EMS podcast in which host Chris Cebollero discusses the immediate steps EMS leaders need to take to prepare their crews for violence at mass gatherings.

Be safe and look out for one another.
