Gordon Graham, a 33-year veteran of California law enforcement and the founder and president of Graham Research Consultants, is the ideal speaker for his keynote address "Making the Right Decisions in the Fast-Paced World of EMS." His focus on risk management and experience in law enforcement and the practice of law will educate listeners in making operational and administrative decisions and what needs to be considered in the decision-making process. He will address the ten-step process, RIDM (Graham's Rules for Improving Decision Making), to make better operational, administrative and ethical decisions. 

Special events
Special events are another way that EMS Today separates itself from other EMS conferences. The JEMS Games is a fun, challenging and educational experience for EMS personnel that puts them in the middle of the action, as well as a learning experience for the watching audience. Teams of three have their skills put to the test in a fast-paced, live competition. For rules, regulations and registration form, visit www.EMSToday.com/jems-games.html.
