If you only knew how proud I am to be a Paramedic, to be a life changer, a life saver, an all too often forgotten hero. Happy EMS Week to some of the most incredible people I have the honor of knowing and working alongside. You are heroes.
As a paramedic that worked along the U.S.-Mexico border until 2010, my colleagues and I responded to a lot of heroin and painkiller overdoses. Some of them we got to in time, while in others we got there too late -- not to mention the many we never heard about.
