Free Book Friday: 25 Things They Should Have Taught You In Medic School… But Didn’t

EMT, blogger, and author Dave Konig has released his newest ebook, 25 Things  They Should Have Taught You In Medic School… But Didn’t.

From the Amazon.com description:

Going to school to become an Emergency Medical Technician or and Advanced Emergency Medical Technician Paramedic can often seem like a long and arduous process. Unfortunately, not everything that should be taught is taught. While reasons may vary from class to class, there are important aspects that just don’t get the amount of time they deserve.

This book looks to address some of the things that just can’t be covered in class, but really should be. The book includes 25 chapters on things every Medic, whether just thinking about signing up for class or graduated way back when, needs to know.

This book provides a brief history of the 9-1-1 system in the United States and provides transcripts of actual 9-1-1 calls from actual people who need help during an “emergency”…you know, like when your local fast food chain runs out of chicken nuggets, when your car battery is dead and your power locks won’t open, or you need assistance being a parent.
