In honor of National EMS Week we've spent the past few days learning about the inner workings of 911 call centers and about first responders including firefighters, EMTs and paramedics. Today, we go inside the emergency room.

Dr. Brad Younggren, emergency doctor at Everygreen Health inKirkland and Medical Director of Safe Kids Eastside, joined host Margaret Larson on the show today to tell us all about emergency rooms and share some safety tips for summer.
