Kevin Grange has dealt with almost every emergency situation imaginable in his years working as a paramedic in Jackson Hole, Los Angeles, Yellowstone and Yosemite. Grange recently released a new memoir called “Wild Rescues.” He joined Will Walkey from KHOL in Jackson, WY, to discuss the challenges of emergency care in the backcountry and the mental health toll of being a paramedic. As a warning, this interview includes discussion of suicide.
