Lights and Sirens: The Education of a Paramedic : <b>A true account of going through UCLA&#8217;s famed Daniel Freeman Paramedic Program&#8212;and practicing emergency medicine on the streets of Los Angeles.</b><br /> <br /> Nine months of tying tourniquets and pushing new medications, of IVs, chest compressions, and defibrillator shocks&#8212;that was Kevin Grange&#8217;s initiation into emergency medicine when, at age thirty-six, he enrolled in the &#8220;Harvard of paramedic schools&#8221;: UCLA&#8217;s Daniel Freeman Paramedic Program, long considered one of the best and most intense paramedic training programs in the world.<br /> <br /> Few jobs can match the stress, trauma, and drama that a paramedic calls a typical day at the office, and few educational settings can match the pressure and competitiveness of paramedic school. Blending months of classroom instruction with ER rotations and a grueling field internship with the Los Angeles Fire Department, UCLA&#8217;s paramedic program is like a mix of boot camp and med school. It would turn out to be the hardest thing Grange had ever done&#8212;but also the most transformational and inspiring.<br /> <br /> An in-depth look at the trials and tragedies that paramedic students experience daily, <i>Lights and Sirens</i> is ultimately about the best part of humanity&#8212;people working together to help save a human life.
