Publisher's Summary

A revealing ride-along with New England’s teenage volunteer EMTs - boys and girls pulled away from their homework to save lives when the sun goes down. 

It’s a Darien, Connecticut, tradition: an emergency medical service managed by adolescents. One kid is a varsity soccer captain. There’s a future doctor, a band dork, a theater geek. Theirs is a view of town without the niceties. A drunken spouse turned violent. Lonely old people stuck in the bath. A midlife suicide. How do these kids process the sometimes shocking and violent life-and-death secrets of their community? The answer is a story of high stress and uncommon high school lives, told by a writer who spent his own youth on the night shift. Welcome to Post 53. 

Rosecrans Baldwin’s Nightcrawlers is part of Exposure, a collection of six incredible and true stories of American double lives from millionaire CEOs and suburban teens to undercover investigators and scam artists - all for whom secrets are a way of life. Each piece can be listened to in a single astonished sitting.

Solid story

This was free from Amazon prime as part of the Exposure collection. This was a short, interesting story about Darien Connecticut using teens as part of its EMS squad. While that aspect was interesting, what I found even more intriguing was the portrayal of Darien as a "sundown" town and closed community; I would have like to hear more of that.

Nice summary

The book did what it set out to do, expose the reader/listener to the EMS run by teens in Darien CT.
A brief look back at the authors EMS involvement in the 1990’s and current EMS ops. Also a brief history of the town itself, primarily from a socioeconomic standpoint.
