Publisher's Summary

We do a dangerous job. We knew that when we signed up. We reach out to each other in difficult times. We are there for each other - all the time! These words echo the words of almost every firefighter and paramedic who is challenged with saving lives and property everyday they are on the job. Shootings, stabbings, building fires, and car accidents are just some of the nail-biting daily experiences of these brave public servants.
Gary Ludwig has been a firefighter/paramedic for 37 years and has worked in two of the most violent cities in the United States (St. Louis and Memphis) for 34 years of those years. He gathers his experiences in this field and presents an honest overview of his experiences with the emotions, feelings, sights, and gut-wrenching efforts men and women in this field experience to save a life or property. This is the insider look at a profession few of us fully appreciate: This book gains the profession the respect that is due. This is a book filled with drama, compassion, and a true understanding of EMS and the fire service. Not since "Report from Engine Company 82" have stories like these been told in such a realistic way.

A must read.

This book is a must read for anyone in the fire service and Emergency Medical Services. It is so real life as to what we do and experience everyday. This book would even capture the attention of the layperson. It is well written with such attention to details. Once you start it you can't stop.

A Must read for Fire Service

Riveting and hard to put down from beginning to end. I enjoyed the stories and learned a lot from this book. I cannot recommend this book enough.
