Publisher's Summary

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 36, 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.

Enjoyed the journey through Paramedic school

As a former Paramedic student i found this book very enjoyable. Wish I listened to it before Paramedic school as it would give you an idea to the intensity of the program.

Well written account of the first steps to a great career

A fabulous book for those who have been a paramedic and recall their days as a student, or those thinking about pursuing a career in Paramedicine.
Seems no matter where you are in the world, the reality and rigors, trials, tribulations and triumphs of been a rookie feel the same ~ Australian ex ambo
