Kickstarter Project: Fire/EMS Book Don’t Be Afraid

EMT Joe Galizio has just finished writing a children’s book called “Don’t Be Afraid.” He is looking for backers for his kickstarter project. This is the first EMS/Fire related kickstarter project I have seen.

Joe wrote to me:

“As a volunteer EMT on Long Island, I have seen quite a few fires and accidents involving children. I have also visited many schools to help educate children about emergency workers, the gear we wear and use, and how to act during emergencies.

I’ve come to find that children are often scared of us and our tools, especially when involved in an incident. My book is to help educate kids not to hide from us, and to become familiar with a lot of the tools we will use during these emergencies. I launched a Kickstarter campaign in hopes to get this project launched and am looking for professional opinions, advice, and assistance spreading the word.”

Check out Joe’s project, consider backing his effort, and share the project with others. Thanks!
