I started my journey into a career in EMS accidentally. It’s now been 23 years since I started as an EMT-basic, and 21 years since I became a paramedic. This blog is a way for me to chronicle some of the experiences I’ve had. Being a paramedic in a major urban area is an education that one just cannot find in a book, a look a life in a way few will ever see. This provides opportunity for some great moments, some deep heartbreak, and now, the chance to reflect back on all of this and how it has affected and changed my life.
