"Bringing out the Dead"
Okay America (and Canada too), Here is your assignment.
You want to know what it is really like to be an EMT or Paramedic. This is as close as it comes with the reality of being burnt out, getting all the calls no one wants, and most of all, being awake at zero dark thirty.
I am off to work almost 48 straight starting off at the fire department and finishing up with the EMS station.
While I am gone, I would highly recommend watching this movie. With an all star line-up in it, I would portray this as a dark comedy/drama. It may not be suitable for younger children, so there is your disclaimer.
I cannot speak for Scott (Stories from my Ambulance) or Kasey (The Return of Kaseypalooza), but, for me, this is as close as it comes...to the mind of a paramedic.
Watch and take notes...there may be a quiz.
