"Great read as the author brings you right into the action as you respond on calls.  Besides getting a feeling of what it is like working the streets, you get an inside look at the life of those doing this challenging job.  Reading the stories, you will see the caring and dedication to the job C.B. brought with him." - George Steffensen, EMT-P, Author of Paramedic Buff to Burnt
 
"This book went beyond talking about the emergencies paramedics respond to and showed how they can do their essential job... they become a FAMILY !!  Mr. Garris lays his life and experiences open to allow the reader to see what makes these unsung heroes "tick". (Retired NYC EMS/FDNY-EMS Lieutenant)

From the Author:

 There are very dedicated men and women out here, professional and volunteer all over the world; saving lives and doing their part to ensure loved ones make it home. In the instances where they may not come home, at least their loved ones will know that they were treated with compassion, caring and the best care they could receive in tragic moments, and that every step was taken to make a difference. 
 
This book is part of that matrix, to bring you inside our world of chaos and camaraderie, of caring and danger; sometimes facing things we hope never to experience. I had the honor to serve with an amazing crew of EMT's and Paramedics in New York City, and I can only hope that others, no matter what field of work they are in, have the connection and fraternal family experience in their professional lives that I did and still do.

Book Description Trafford Publishing, United States, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. While a profound and much deserved amount of attention has always been directed toward the firefighters and police officers who were affected by the events of September 11, 2001, seldom has there been any attention provided to the often unrecognized rescuer who bears the title of Emergency Medical Technician or Paramedic who suffered equal consequences. These very special people have routinely been referred to simply as "emergency workers" or "ambulance drivers," rather than by the title they continuously demonstrate by the nature of their very trying profession. PARAMEDIC: M.O.S., pulled from the author's EMS experiences; was assembled to provide deeper insight into the mind of one such New York City Emergency Medical Technician/Paramedic and is dedicated to all emergency service workers and first responders. Inspired by true events pre-September 11th, a Paramedic of NYC EMS finds his world suddenly turned upside down by a series of in-the-line-of-duty events. In an effort to understand what brought him there, he begins reconnecting the events in his work and personal life that created this unforeseen scenario. Facing daily crises and how they apply to how he entered this line of work, readers are also shown the closeness that is felt and experienced working in such close proximity to those who face death and destruction together as a team daily. Comforted and kept together by his female mate, readers are taken through the sometimes playing field and often minefield of Emergency Medical Services in New York City and what it means to be a Member of the Service. PARAMEDIC: M.O.S. is a profound and deeply personal look into the experiences on the front lines of Emergency Medical Services in New York City. EMTs and paramedics not only experience the highs and lows of constant exposure to psychologically traumatic events but in addition to the constant intensity of patients revived or lost due to these events. Furthermore, EMTs and Paramedics are also forced to deal with coworkers who are sometimes ineffective, self-serving, uncaring, as well as bureaucratic red tape, politics, and often personal tragedy within their own fraternal public safety family. These incidents rarely, if ever, get reported in the general media. This book was created to share the human condition of EMT's and Paramedics, their camaraderie, bravery, and skill. Although September 11, 2001 claimed at least eight precious lives of these specialized rescuers, not even this was enough to direct attention toward the New York City Emergency Medical Technicians and Paramedics who lose their lives daily or are permanently scarred in the line of duty. The title of "hero" for those that have died and those that are out there every day risking their lives to save others existed long before September 11th changed calendar days. This book is an offering to share that view. Seller Inventory # AAV9781490758046
