Physical assault on medics is a growing problem. Medic Nerd attended a self defense class by DT4EMS that teaches emergency responders how to escape violent encounters.
The guys of DT4EMS, owner Kip Teitsort & instructor Matt Lopez, were kind enough to let our cameras roll during the class and then to talk to us on camera after the class. I highly recommend you check out their website: www.DT4EMS.com to learn more.
Also, a huge thanks to Gail Dunmyer of Capital Regional Medical Center for making this all possible.
