Abstract

Last year, Tyrone Sinkler, 16, and Ian Moore, his 17-year-old buddy, were gunned down in the hallway of their New York City school by a disgruntled classmate. For many EMTs and paramedics, this tragedy would have just added to the helplessness we feel when we go on calls in which children kill children. But for some New York City EMS (NYC*EMS) personnel, this incidence added fuel to their fire of determination to prevent such violence. Through a program called KISS (Kids, Injuries and Street Smarts), which coincidentally was poised to begin about the same time as the Sinkler and Moore tragedy, NYC*EMS personnel strive to reduce traumatic injuries to adolescents.
