From L.A. to Wyoming with Kevin Grange


Fire and EMS are challenging enough in a city, where there are resources available.

But in rural areas, they’re even more of a challenge.

EMS, for example – when there’s no level-1 trauma center nearby, how do you deal with major incidents?

And fire – it’s not all about wildland responses. What do you do when a first-alarm fire takes up most of the area’s resources?

My guest on this episode is well aware of those scenarios… he lives with them every day.

Kevin Grange is a paramedic and firefighter in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. He’s an award-winning author who wrote about his experiences as a paramedic in Los Angeles. That’s about as far as you can get from Jackson Hole, if you know what I mean.
