In the new Kindle ebook You Called 9-1-1 for What? (amazon affiliate link) Dave Konig an experienced New York City EMT writes a quick and entertaining look at the 911 system that serves the United States. A brief history of the system’s design and development is interspersed with transcripts from actual 911 calls. As a paramedic I was amused but not surprised by the myriad of absurd reasons citizens call 911. Lay readers (people that are not paramedics, firefighters, or police officers) will have an increased appreciation for the tedium and emotional drain that comes from interacting with the not so bright among us.
EMS and fire readers will probably find more information and value in Dave’s book Official Guide to Blogging for EMS.
