Professor Molloy Publishes EMT Book

Crafton Hills College (CHC) adjunct professor Dave Molloy recently published a book detailing the life of an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT). According to Molloy, who draws from more than two decades of experience as a paramedic and now serves as a primary EMT instructor at CHC, there is a lot more to the job than what television dramas and movies depict. These depictions can lead to an inaccurate perspective of what it means to be a good pre-hospital care provider. Molloy reflects, "My personal journey in emergency medical services (EMS) began as a child watching the television show EMERGENCY. I watched in awe as paramedics Johnny Gage and Roy De Soto responded to call after call helping people who were sick and injured." Later Molloy learned that although programs like this one lead many people to think that a typical day of an emergency medical technician is filled with life-and-death situations, that is not the reality.
