    An Excellent Collection of Reality

    As a Firefighter/EMT en route to Medic, I found the book very enlightening and true to life. At times, I had to laugh at the stories of runs because I have been on many of the same types of scenes. And, since reading the book, I have had to chuckle at scenes because they are so similar to stories from Mr. Canning. I picked up a lady with a 1/4 in. superficial cut to her pinky who was on the phone to her Doc and needed transported by ambulance to get a Tetnus Shot. This was comical after reading something very similar. Cannings stories and feelings are real and 'from the Streets.' I appreciate the work he did and the experiences he shared. It makes bad situations seem a little easier knowing others out there are having the same feelings and BS situations comical knowing somewhere out there someone else is listening to the same story and running in an easy 3. Thanks Mr. Canning for you books.

    Peter Canning is simply the best, most realistic person writing

    Peter Canning is simply the best, most realistic person writing about EMS. His style is easy to read, his stories are moving, and his medical descriptions are right on target. Great for the general public or fellow EMSers.

    Awsome book

    Being an EMT-B in Merced County, I've seen a lot of grusome things. This book describes these things very well. I don't like to read very much, but I couldn't put this book down. I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to know more about EMS, or wanting to know what goes on in other EMS agencies.
