From the Author
I am sorry but not surprised that Rick, the Las Vegas paramedic, was disappointed with EMT. The purpose of my first book was not to be "exciting." Rather, both EMT and the sequel, RESCUE, were intended to let readers know the very human side of EMS, and the importance of the holistic approach to patients in the emergency setting. I will be the first to admit that my books are not for readers interested only in "lights and sirens." I wrote them so that readers might understand that most of the folks involved in EMS are not superhuman, but are simply altruistic men and women who have accepted the responsibility of caring for others at the hour of their greatest need. In addition, I wrote the books with the hope of attracting more volunteers into the world of EMS, and to that end, judging from the letters I have recieved from new recruits, I feel the books have served that purpose. A nationwide surge in the number of EMS volunteers continues to be my greatest wish.
