On today’s podcast, I interview Steve Rabinovich of the ECHO Group. The ECHO Group is a not-for-profit group of police officers and other first responders who provide critical medical training for patrol and SWAT cops. The idea is to provide you with the “down and dirty” basics of keeping yourself or partner alive in a situation where EMS may be unavailable for immediate response.

Since posting the show, Steve’s website (ECHO Group) is no longer in operation. At this point, I do not know what is going on with that outfit or Steve himself. I hope all is well and I wish him the best.
