True Stories from Emergency Providers by Marion Tekla begins with the story of a patient who comes to heal, and a friend who comes to get high. An alligator attack on the rescue team and a friend who accidentally shoots himself in the foot then follows. A call from someone complaining of severe chest pains and difficulty breathing, and when the medical help arrives, they find the house is on fire (difficulty in breathing due to smoke!), or that of a woman calling 911 for a bear in her back yard, or someone calling 911 four times because she got a bad manicure, and many other kinds of emergencies can be found in this book.

True Stories from Emergency Providers by Marion Tekla is an entertaining book, with stories more unbelievable and complex than the most contorted fiction. The narration is always to the point, and the variety and content of the events described make me envious of the personnel connected with safety services – they always have an exciting day. There are many emergencies described in this book, which are connected with one or a few simple mistakes that were unnoticed, and it should work as a reminder to all of us not to overlook the obvious. This is a good collection of stories of public interest; it also shows us how worthy are the emergency, paramedic and 911 staff of high praise, in addition to being a very good read.
