A group of new IAED Instructors discuss their experiences taking the EMD and EFD Instructor courses. The guests are Miguel Garcia and Nicole Smith with the Sarasota County Fire Department in Florida, Bernhard Eisenbock with Notruf Niederösterreich in Lower Austria, Brooke Dittfurth with Acadian Ambulance Service in Texas, Joanna Overton with El Paso Regional Communications Center in Texas, and Diane Verrault with Groupe Alerte Santé in Quebec. They talk about their street experience in emergency response, things that surprised them as they’ve begun to teach, and advice for other people thinking about applying.
