Hi there! My real name is Norm Ferrier, and I an emergency medical service and emergency management specialist and academic, based in Newcastle, Ontario, Canada. Among other things, I conduct research on emergency management, disasters, and healthcare, and I am about to receive my Ph.D. (already have an M.Sc. in the subject). I have written a college/university level textbook in emergency management, which has just gone to market. My career in EMS spans more than 35 years now, and goes back (literally) to when there were still Cadillacs on the road, we were all called 'Drivers' and anyone who went beyond 'you call...we haul' was considered by all nurses, and many of their own colleagues, to be 'playing Doctor'. Looking back over my career, I've had the privilege of watching the evolution of an amazing system, perhaps even influencing it from time to time. How far we have come!
