A Portrait of a Responder

A paramedic rests his head on his arm and leans against the ambulance’s back door for support. The stretcher is missing and discarded items lay forgotten on the floor, remnants of what obviously was a chaotic, traumatic scene. Closer inspection reveals a teddy bear seated in the back of the ambulance, making the scene even more heartwrenching.  (read more)

Adrenaline rush

by Chelle Cordero

 

As a (volunteer) Emergency Medical Technician, I know what it is to arrive at a scene in a “big truck” with lights flashing and sirens blaring. I admit there is a bit of inflated ego to run into a scene and have strangers clear the way for you to reach a patient in need. There is also a momentary panic inside to look at your patient’s eyes as they look to you for help, sometimes to save their life, and the adrenaline kicks in to do all that you can do to make them more comfortable and get them to the hospital alive.

 

In over 25-years of doing this, I’ve known the euphoria of delivering babies, the desperations of knowing how precious every second is, the frustration of losing a patient, and the tears shed as a family member clings to you because you are their only hope.

 

EMS is a passion of mine. Whether an EMS provider career or volunteer, I have tremendous respect for everyone who takes their training and goes out into the world with the most important equipment, their hands and their brain, to use the equipment on an ambulance to make a difference. My husband and I both joined a volunteer ambulance squad when our two kids were little – and they grew into the EMS family. In addition to (still) volunteering for the same ambulance corps, our daughter is a career Paramedic and our son is a career EMT. (& forgive my crassness, but I am damn proud of them both).

 

Perhaps this is why I enjoy creating characters who are first responders. I’ve lived it, I’ve loved it, I respect it.

 

One of the characters I really enjoyed writing about is Julie Jennings, the heroine of my mystery thriller Final Sin. Julie is a NYS Paramedic, she is also a passionate woman who likes to live life to its fullest and cares for the people around her completely. Like most real life first responders, Julie isn’t in the field for “the money” (EMS is a truly under-appreciated profession) – she is in it to help.

Blurb for Final Sin

Deputy Sheriff Commander Jake Carson has his hands full with the investigation of a brutal multiple homicide, a troubled son and a vindictive ex-wife when he meets young, free-spirited paramedic Julie Jennings. He is immediately drawn to her and finds himself unexpectedly falling in love. Julie finds herself just as drawn to him. When Julie becomes the subject of an obsession, it puts both of their lives in extreme danger…

 

I started a Listopia list on GoodReads for Everday HerosThe main character(s) is a first responder (EMT, Paramedic, Police Officer, Fire fighter, etc). Why don’t you take a moment to go there and check it out? Please add any books you’ve read that fit the description and please vote for the ones that are there (three of mine are listed: Final SinHyphema, and Within the Law)

This booklet is intended as a guide to help you get through a medical or trauma crisis it is not intended to replace professional medical or emergency response or advice.

I have been an Emergency Medical Technician, CPR and First Aid Instructor, and volunteer with a local ambulance corps for nearly three decades. I’ve responded to numerous emergencies, performed CPR, delivered babies, transported trauma victims and sometimes just offered comfort to a patient enroute to the hospital.

People deal with emergencies differently, but no matter how serious or minor the event may seem to someone else, each person who experiences pain, fear or loss for themselves or a loved one is dealing with a true crisis. It is my hope that this booklet will give a little comfort when it comes to dealing with an emergency.

Best wishes for your continued GOOD health!
