About

Why do they do it?

This documentary is going to detail how our First Responders such as EMT's and Paramedics deal with everyday situations in their communities. It will show how First Responders cope with everything from birth, death, trauma, dangers, family life, 9/11, Ebola, and the public. With PTSD at an all-time high I think it's important to highlight the courageous actions of our overlooked and under appreciated everyday heroes and the stresses they have to deal with everyday. Each story will be unique and will capture the hearts and minds of the public. Hopefully this can be an eye opening experience for everyone. The main goal of this documentary will be to educate the public that the men and women of the Emergency Medical Services system are not just so-called ambulance drivers and are not heartless robots just doing a job. I want this to be an experience that will last a lifetime. Your continued support of this project will allow all supporters to build this project that inspired me commemorating the the unsung hereos of the EMS system all over the world.

Cast:

So far we have first responders from the Plainfield, NJ Rescue Squad where I started 19 years ago, the Jersey City Medical Center EMS, and the FDNY EMS that are going to be interviewed. More candidates are be screened for possible interviews.

Video Equipment:

Nikon D5100 and Nikon D7100, GoPro Cameras to install in ambulances are in the works.

Vision:

The world has very little understanding on what it takes to be an Emergency Responder and the personal risks that are associated with the job. If you want to support a meaningful real life documentary then here is your chance.

The conception of this project came to Carlos after his own struggles with PTSD and depression due to his services at Ground Zero during search and rescue operations, and also losing a life long family friend and fellow first responder Joseph Lovero to the tragedy. This project will be unique due to the fact that we will be focusing on how the first responders feel about what they do and the things they've encountered from the past and how it effects their judgements and feelings towards future incidents.

Pledgers: Every Dollar Counts

Given the chance every dollar pledged will show good karma and we will ensure pledgers will receive a quality film that will be inspiring and eye opening to everyone that watches.

About Director:

Carlos A. Negron II, 36, born and raised in Jersey City, NJ is a 15 year veteran EMT from the state of NJ, as well as a 9/11 First Responder. He came up with this idea for a documentary based on his life and the life other First Responders that he has worked with in his community, as well as other First Responders from NJ and NY.

Risks and challenges

The challenges to this project will mainly be funding. Although we will not be focusing on patients or patient care, things such as permissions to ride along with certain EMS systems may arise due to insurance liabilities, HIPPA, or policies implemented by individual organizations. Since this will be a real-life documentary unexpected situations may arise but nothing we will not be able to tackle as a crew of mainly first responders will be helping to film this.
