Specialty onsite topics include implementation of Just Culture and Safety Management Systems. We also offer individual executive assessment and coaching.
Professional Journal and Website Articles
Our team members contribute regular articles on management and other important topics to respected industry publications and websites such as EMS1.com, Paramedic Chief, JEMS, Air Medical Journal, EMS World, Fire Chief, EMS Insider, and the former Best Practices in Emergency Services. We have also authored a series of white papers for the International City/County Management Association.
Fitch principals and consultants have written or contributed to the majority of texts used in college-level EMS management programs. Our latest full-length textbook, Prehospital Care Administration Second Edition: The Industry’s Best Articles, Essays and Case Studies on The Toughest EMS Issues, published in cooperation with JEMS, gives students, managers and executives dozens of case studies on critical issues facing their industry.
