For this assignment, choose one peer-reviewed or scholarly article to review from the CSU Online Library or a resource from a credible professional website, such as EMS World or the Journal of Emergency Medical Services (JEMS), which discusses a current issue specific to an emergency medical services (EMS) system. The purpose of this assignment is to allow you to practice reviewing professional literature for application in your own agency/industry. By developing an understanding of how to interpret articles for best practices or industry standards, you can avoid repeating the mistakes of others as well as enhance your own efforts to transition your EMS agency to a progressive role in your community. You will also continue to use this skill as you draft research papers and other scholarly writings in the future.

Discuss how the article relates to this course.
You will only need to cite and reference the article you are reviewing for this assignment; however, ensure that it is cited and referenced properly using APA formatting. Your article review should be at least two pages in length.
