Resources for an EMT or Paramedic

With all of the training, education, and certifications that an EMT or paramedic needs, one has to wonder, “What kind of resources would best help me?” The necessary resources for a paramedic are many, but we’d like to go through a few to help you in your future (or current) profession.

BOOKS

A PARAMEDIC’S STORY: LIFE, DEATH AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN

“Welcome to the life-and-death world of an EMT—sometimes bloody, sometimes even funny, but always compelling.

When someone dials 911, Emergency Medical Technician Kelly Grayson is there—to restart the heart that has stopped beating, deal with dangerously high blood alcohol levels, or pull a body from a mangled car wreck. As an EMT, Grayson sees people at their best and worst, in situations that can be gruesome, moving, and heart-breaking. Regardless of the emergency, Grayson is the first line of defense, picking up the pieces and saving lives—or, sadly, watching them slip away.

A Paramedic’s Story is bursting with stories that run the gamut from lighthearted to heart-wrenching. With his brutally candid style, Grayson gives readers his special insight into the human condition, and shows us what it feels like to hold lives in his hands every day.”
