Descrizione

Nine months of tying tourniquets and pushing new medications, of IVs, chest compressions, and defibrillator shocks-that was Kevin Grange's initiation into emergency medicine when, at age thirty-six, he enrolled in the "Harvard of paramedic schools": UCLA's Daniel Freeman paramedic program, long considered one of the best and most intense paramedic training programs in the world.



Few jobs can match the stress, trauma, and drama that a paramedic calls a typical day at the office, and few educational settings can match the pressure and competitiveness of paramedic school. Blending months of classroom instruction with ER rotations and a grueling field internship with the Los Angeles Fire Department, UCLA's paramedic program is like a mix of boot camp and med school. It would turn out to be the hardest thing Grange had ever done but also the most transformational and inspiring.



An in-depth look at the trials and tragedies that paramedic students experience daily, Lights and Sirens is ultimately about the best part of humanity-people working together to help save a human life.

    This book was a smooth and interesting read. It had fascinating anecdotes about learning to be a paramedic and provided a real sense of how difficult and rewarding the training can be.Worth reading.
  • (5/5)
    I grew to love the author and to feel all his frustrations, his love for his career, hid hopes, defeats and triumphs. The book kept me interested during every moment I listened, fearing when he feared, joyful when he was joyful. He demonstrates such beautiful qualities of the best of humanity. Lastly, I have a new respect for this lofty group of public servants, and will never cease to praise those I meet. This is a heroic journey for any person who seeks to join its ranks, and their training ranks high in a similar way to how the US Marines rank high. It takes strength of will beyond the norm, and a mind and heart in full balance. Like the Marines, it takes a special kind of person to handle this level of care and responsibility. A truly memorable story!

    This book was so great and eye opening!! It was so descriptive that I felt like I was with paramedic Grange! I suggest it to anyone who is interested in EMS! I am starting EMT training soon, and I hope to one day attend UCLA paramedic school, so I found this book quite helpful!
