It is time for a new contest…

If you would like to sponsor this contest with a prize for the winner please let me know at

The contest is to find out per our readers who the best is…

Welcome to the ultimate in fire/EMS blog contests. Who will end up with the bragging rights of being the best Fire and/or EMS Blog of the Year 2009?

Nominate your favorite today via twitter , email, or contact page . Just send us the blog, url, and why the blog is the best. If using twitter use hashtag #FCBLOG09.

A while back I posted about the best fire blogs, EMS blogs and web sites. You can view it here. The problem I had was narrowing it down to the best. Therefore, I am asking you all for help. After all, you don’t care what I think as much as I care what you think! Feel free to use those blogs listed as a guide for some of the best, but your favorite might not be listed.

One thing I have tried to do here at the Fire Critic is to help showcase other Fire/EMS bloggers. I have done this through the Monday Morning Shoutout, showcasing other bloggers, and linking to others content. I feel as though many fire/EMS blogs don’t get read enough because it is hard to keep up with all of them and some are hard to find. There is one thing for sure…there are some GREAT fire and EMS blogs! This contest will certainly show who the favorites are!
