“AT THE END OF THE DAY you may go home wondering if it was all worthwhile. But later … when that little kid you thought wasn’t going to make it gives you a hug … or the teenager you did CPR on gives you a high five … or the little elderly lady points you out in the grocery store and says ‘You saved my husband’s life!’ … there truly is no better feeling. These are the stories that drove me to work in EMS.”
–Cedric Franken, Paramedic
