Listen to this interview with Michael Morse author of Rescuing Providence. Michael and I had a great conversation about how he got started in the Providence, Rhode Island Fire Department as a firefighter. When he was detailed to a rescue (ambulance) he realized he had “missed his calling” and stayed full time in EMS. Michael holds a certification as an EMT-Cardiac (similar to EMT Intermediate).
Michael has always had an interest and “knack” for writing. When he started working the Rescue he was bombarded by the stories of the people he served. Rescuing Providence is a study of the people of Providence. The book is based on his notes from a single 34 hour tour and the patients he encountered on that shift.
Michael and I also talked about:
- His process of writing Rescuing Providence
- The big risk he took to publish the book
- Support from his employer and co-workers for the book
- His love for blogging, www.rescuingprovidence.com
- Advice for aspiring authors
Michael has already written a second book, Night and Day, and is looking for a publisher.
