Most of you are familiar with Kelly Grayson, proprietor of the Ambulance Driver Files blog. He’s been a speaker at a myriad of EMS conferences, educated more people than I’ve met, and has been a helping hand to countless sick and injured people throughout his career.
(Side note – Kelly’s teaching recently came in handy for Girlie Bear. While doing training with her ROTC class, she surprised her instructors by being able to properly put on a tourniquet in a short amount of time. She learned it from Kelly in one of his Shooter Self Care classes.)
Recently, Kelly re-released his book, “En Route – A Paramedic’s Stories of Life, Death, and Everything In Between“. It’s a collection of vignettes from his experiences in the first few years of his career. He tells us tales that will make you laugh until your sides hurt, as well as those that will make your heart ache.
Grayson is an expert storyteller, and even though these stories are short bites of his life, he draws a complete picture and draws you into every one of them. His stories flow very well, and you will find yourself immersed as you read.
The book is a quick read, and it leaves you looking forward to the sequel. If you’re looking for something to read in front of the fire while Old Man Winter shakes the house, this is it.
