Publisher's Summary

Paramedics save lives. Morticians bury their mistakes.  

A 23-year veteran of emergency medical services, paramedic Matthew Sias took a detour in his career to pursue the death-care business and found a complementarity between two seemingly divergent careers. Silent Siren: Memoirs of a Life Saving Mortician is the record of some of the more memorable calls he has responded to through the years.  

Often intense, at times gruesome, and frequently humorous, this memoir takes you from the back seat of the medic unit racing to the hospital with a trauma patient, to the brightly lit embalming room of a funeral home, and everywhere in between. Having the ability to calmly assist a person in crisis is, perhaps, one of life's most awesome privileges.

Informative. Compassionate.

I love how this author has such a passion for compassion. There are many stories of patients, both here and gone-all told with brilliant observation to each one in order to handle them with such compassion.
It amazes me that a person is compelled to serve the dead with the utmost dignity and respect, even when nobody, including the patient (?) is looking.
