Lee Jean Heller's New Book "Lights for Life, Sirens for Suffering" Is a Memoir About Both the Critical Value of First Responders and the Unique Burden That They Carry

Lee Jean Heller, a long-time EMT and Crisis Management Volunteer has completed her new book “Lights for Life, Sirens for Suffering" an intimate and distinctive insight into the world of first responders.

According to Heller, "When we are trained as first responders, it is impossible to be ready for everything we may be faced with. Commonly, a lot of it is covered by book learning, but the worst is not. How can anyone prepare you for some of the sights and pain you will experience? Each call is different, and the more years you serve, the more chances you will eventually be faced with hard-to-recover-from events.

Balancing the good, bad, and ugly is sometimes difficult. We have a plan for many situations; however, there are those that are hard to believe even for seasoned but caring humans. These are the unforgettable events that some do not feel comfortable to even talk about, ever. Or they feel like they can but no one really wants to hear about it.

Who can be prepared for arriving on the scene and it is their best friend, their mother, or their only son? Training can slip away and they can become a victim too. This book contains events and circumstances that can and do happen to us as first responders. However, it can and does happen to others too.

I have found that talking about it with others helps tremendously. If we do not reach out to others, how can we expect them to know how or when to help us? I have also found, for me, helping others in similar circumstances helps me to heal. Working together with the police, fire, and EMS is a must. We are brothers and sisters, which means, a family.

We are much more comfortable wearing the helper hat than the help-me hat. But first, we have to acknowledge, we are humans too.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Lee Jean Heller's tale unique insight into the world of first responders derives its perspective from deeply personal, and often traumatic memories from her career as an EMT.

Central to her cause, and certainly her most vivid and dark memory, was the suicide of her EMT partner, a devastating experience that has driven and informed her career from that day forward.

During her career, her experiences with police, firefighters, physicians, and others who face danger and death daily pop from the pages, and her interactions with these individuals come to life in a way unique to someone who has lived that life.

Readers who wish to experience this riveting work can purchase “Lights for Life, Sirens for Suffering" at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
