EMS Blogs on the Ballot

Fire Blogs on the Ballot

Hosted by EMS1, FireRescue1 and, and sponsored by the American Military University, this contest has the goal of finding the best bloggers in the EMS and fire industries.

This is the third year of the contest. This year, we have streamlined the process and made it easier to understand.

The contest has two stages:

Stage 1 – Open Nominations (March 1 – March 10)

Submit your nominations for Fire & EMS Blog of the Year via the entry form at the bottom of this page.

Stage 2 – Vote for the Finalists (March 14 – March 21)

Our judges will select ten finalists for each category (Fire & EMS), using this criteria. Everyone will then get to vote via poll from these ten (in each category) for their favorite Fire blog and their favorite EMS blog. The voting will be for the “Reader’s Choice” winner for each category. Both of the bloggers will win a pair of ATAC Duty Boots.

Our judges will also vote for their favorites, resulting in a “Judge’s Choice” winner for each category. Both will win a 5.11 Light for Life Flashlight.

That is FOUR prizes total up for grabs.
