Hello,

EMS wannabee here. I'm almost finished with my current book, and I was wondering are there any EMS books that are written by paramedics.

I'm not looking for books that help you on tests (yet) just a good non-fiction EMS book.

Thanks B)

^_^ I will definently check out those EMS blogs, but i like to have a book to read during lunch time at school to, thanks!


I'll see if they have this at the local library, thanks for the reply. It will be interesting to see how British EMS differs from American EMS.

It says CL Edit - removed hyperlink. Well I bookmarked the blog so I have the link now but why was it removed? So I see you are the author of that book, I will also see if they have that at the local library. Thanks!

EMT: Beyond the Lights and Sirens By Pat Ivey

EMT: Rescue



When I was but a young lad and my Mom and Grandpa were still running, I read and re-read EMT: Beyond the Lights and Sirens and imagined following in their footsteps.

Awesome book from the late 80's that helped get me hooked.
Recently read her second book, EMT: Rescue which is also great, but still a bit outdated.

I'll also chime in and nominate anything by Peter Canning. Simply an amazing author and Blogger.

And of course, AD. (For all you heathens out there, thats Ambulance Driver!) His blog is second to none in witticism, cynicism, other -isms, thoughtful reflection, comedy, and a little bit of gun powder ;) Check out his book too, it was recently re-released. I haven't picked it up yet, but the original about had me pissing my pants laughing so hard!

Thanks everyone,

I finished these 2 books:


-Paramedic: On the Front Lines of Medicine
and
-Rescue 471: A Paramedic's Stories


They were AMAZING! They taught me alot of what do they in ambulances when all I see is just a fast driving truck with flashing lights and loud sirens.

Can't wait to graduate from high school :sad:
