Rescue 911

Tales from a First Responder

People from all walks of life call 911 when things go bad. These are their stories, told by the people who respond and make things better.

First responders often don’t tell stories, preferring to keep what happens at work private. Rescue Captain Michael Morse changes that with these heartfelt descriptions of hundreds of emergency calls, with the usual coverings peeled back, exposing the bizarre, heartbreaking, and often hilarious reactions to 911 emergencies.

Michael Morse lives in Warwick, RI with his wife, Cheryl, two Maine Coon cats, Lunabelle and Victoria Mae, and Mr. Wilson, their dog. Daughters Danielle and Brittany live nearby. Michael spent twenty-three years working in Providence, RI, as a firefighter/EMT before retiring in 2013 as Captain, Rescue Co. 5. His books and articles offer fellow firefighters/EMTs and the general public a poignant glimpse into one person’s journey through life, work, and hope for the future.
