In celebration of EMS Week 2017 I have the following e-book deals going on at Amazon:
Medic school is all about teaching you how to save the lives of others, right? Because that’s what the Emergency Medic Services does, right? Maybe… but there are many topics that medic school doesn’t cover, such as what about the health and well being of the medic providing the care? What kind of shifts will you work?? When will you have time for lunch??? How RICH will you be????
Upon reading this book you will have some honest answers and a new found appreciation for those who stand between you and a potentially negative outcome in times of medical and traumatic emergencies. Understanding how their lives are vastly different by answering that call for help when it comes to things such as eating lunch, getting sleep, and being with family on the holidays will have you appreciate them that much more when you need them.

“She’s gone. No pulse, no breathing, and cold as an ice cube,” I replied while reluctantly withdrawing my hand.
Turning around and away from her, my eyes fell on the scene at the end of the basement. Along the wall were roughly a dozen men. All of them had their arms above their heads with their palms pressed against the concrete wall. Their feet were spread apart. Their heads were hung in either shame or fear.
