Price: $1.99
As an Emergency Medical Technician driven to save lives, I nearly lost mine to the failures. Each loss continued to fray the tether that held my sanity to this world. While searching for an understanding of death amidst my own alcoholic frenzy, I stumbled upon the meaning of life, and a story of self-sacrifice and redemption materialized through my eventual acceptance of the turmoil that is life. I call it The Dust of Man. I was 20-years-old when I started my EMS career as an advanced Emergency Medical Technician in a rural area. For seven years I worked with a volunteer ambulance squad with only one other emergency medical technician. The lack of volunteers made it necessary for me to go on every call possible, including those involving family. It seemed my grasp on reality would slip at any moment.

    "A moving look inside the life of a rural EMT." What is life like for a volunteer Emergency Medical Technician serving in a small community? Or more importantly, what effect does such a job have on those who willingly perform it? Rescue workers are the modern-day heroes of our society, wielding IV kits, backboards and defib. machines in place of superhuman strength, speed and X-ray vision. They are expected to function perfectly and without emotion at a moment's notice. They can't get flustered or scared in the face of chaos. Time after time, they are all that stands between victims and death, doing everything they can to protect the one and defeat the other. But they are human. Just flesh and bone. Sometimes they fail. Sometimes their job gets the best of them. They have hearts that break and minds that struggle with the horrors they have seen. And often enough, for those serving in small communities, it’s family and friends that they are called upon to save. THE DUST... More > OF MAN is an autobiographical account of one man’s struggle with the hardships of life as a volunteer EMT in upstate New York.
