The basis for the movie starring Kathy Bates, Ambulance Girl is an inspiring story by a woman who found, somewhat late in life, that “in helping others I learned to help myself.” Jane Stern was a walking encyclopedia of panic attacks, depression, and hypochondria. Her marriage of more than thirty years was suffering, and she was virtually immobilized by fear and anxiety. As the daughter of parents who both died before she was thirty, Stern was terrified of illness and death, and despite the fact that her acclaimed career as a food and travel writer required her to spend a great deal of time on airplanes, she suffered from a persistent fear of flying and severe claustrophobia. Yet, this fifty-two-year-old writer decided to become an emergency medical technician. Stern tells her story with great humor and poignancy, creating a wonderful portrait of a middle-aged, Woody Allen–ish woman who was “deeply and neurotically terrified of sick and dead people,” but who went out into the world to save other people’s lives as a way of saving her own. Her story begins with the boot camp of EMT training: 140 hours at the hands of a dour ex-marine who took delight in presenting a veritable parade of amputations, hideous deformities, and gross disasters. Jane—overweight and badly out of shape—had to surmount physical challenges like carrying a 250-pound man seated in a chair down a dark flight of stairs. After class she did rounds in the emergency room of a local hospital. Each call Stern describes is a vignette of human nature, often with a life in the balance. From an AIDS hospice to town drunks, yuppie wife beaters to psychopaths, Jane comes to see the true nature and underlying mysteries of a town she had called home for twenty years. Throughout the book we follow her as she gets her sea legs, bonds with the firefighters who become her colleagues, and eventually, comes to be known as Ambulance Girl.

This book takes the reader to the front lines of medicine, from a serious automobile accident on a dark country road to a woman in cardiac arrest to a young man with near‐fatal gunshot wounds. For these patients and countless others, treatment cannot wait until they are wheeled into a distant emergency room. If lives are to be salvaged, care must begin with the life‐saving skills of Emergency Medical Technicians. “I could never work on a rescue squad,” is a statement the author has heard over and over throughout her years of squad service and readily admits it once described her own feelings. “If I can do it, so can you,” is her response to those whose fear and self‐doubt hold them back. “Anything is possible.” EMT: Beyond the Lights and Sirens is more than a personal account of Pat Ivey’s rescue squad experiences. It is a story of courage and hope and letting go of past losses. It is a book for anyone who has ever struggled to go beyond who they are. Step aboard the ambulance. Witness the tender moments amidst tragedy. Experience the joy and the anguish, and share the tears and laughter of volunteer rescue squad personnel who respond around the clock to the cries of others. In this heartwarming and compelling book, Pat Ivey takes the reader beyond the lights and sirens on a journey they will never forget.

This handbook incorporates requirements, information, and procedures formerly contained in AFSOC SG policy letters. This Handbook applies to all active duty AFSOC 4F0X1 and 4N0X1 personnel, certified at the Emergency Medical Technician- Intermediate and Paramedic level, as outlined in AFSOCI 48-101. Medical Control Care of injured personnel in combat or rescue situations requires medical command and control by licensed medical providers. Paramedical and Emergency Medical Technician-Intermediates providing care in these situations are acting under the principal of ‘delegated authority’, where the provider(usually a physician) allows appropriately trained personnel to perform specified diagnostic and therapeutic interventions. There are several types of medical control: - On Line Medical Control: A physician is either present on the scene and personally directs patient care, or is contacted by radio or other means and gives ‘live’ instructions. -Off Line Medical Control: Contact with a control physician is impossible or impractical, care is given based on specific physician approved protocols. The medical control chain for AFSOC medical technicians assigned to Operations Support Squadron Medical Flights(OSS/OSM) is in the following precedence: On Line Medical Control: - Senior AFSOC Flight Surgeon present at the scene. - Special Tactics Flight Surgeon present at the scene. - Senior US military physician present at the scene. - Qualified(training equivalent to US physician) Allied country senior military physician present at the scene - Qualified civilian physician(training equivalent to US MD or DO) present at the scene, provided he/she agrees to assume responsibility for care and accompany the patient to higher level of care. - Senior AFSOC Physician Assistant present at the scene - Any of the above in direct radio contact Off Line Medical Control: On line medical control is the preferred means of medical control for all casualty situations. In the event on line control is not possible the following will apply: - The Senior medic is responsible for directing medical care at all scenes where on line control is not possible. He/she will direct medical control in strict adherence to the established protocols contained herein. - AFSOC medical technicians assigned to OSS/OSM flights will attempt to contact on line medical control in all situations prior to reverting to protocol use, with the exception of an immediate life threat and then will attempt to establish on line control as soon as possible after the patient is stabilized.
