¿Hablas español? If not, you’re going to want to tune in to this week’s show to learn some keywords and phrases that could come in handy on the incident scene.

The impetus for this show: Zam was on a call where he found himself struggling to communicate with a patient who spoke Spanish. Always driven to improve, Zam sought out The Language Tutor for some help with Spanish for first responders, and now the tutor himself, Dr. Danny Evans, joins Better Every Shift to share some general phrases (“I am here to help”), keywords (“pain,” “medications”), directives (“breathe slowly”) and questions (“Where does it hurt?”) that can help any first responder looking to level up their communication skills.
