you were invincible… or at least thought you were? It was during
your teen years and early twenties. Right? I bet you and your
friends took some silly risks. I bet some of your choices
weren’t wise. Luckily you survived those years, but many of us
have had friends, brothers or sisters who didn’t.

be as lucky as you.

Teens will make
the wrong choices, and they will pay dearly for those choices.
You may know some of them. They may be your co-workers’ kids or,
heaven forbid, your own.
Let’s Help Prevent Teens From Dying From Making The Wrong
Who I Am and
Why I Wrote This Booklet
My name is
Martin Lesperance. I’ve worked as a firefighter/paramedic
and EMT for over twenty-three years. I’ve also been speaking
on safety motivation for over ten years. Companies such as
Boeing, Excelon Nuclear Power Generation, Shell, Los Alamos
National Laboratory, Chevron, US Army National Guard,
several insurance companies and many other organizations
have heard my message.
written several books including “Safety Tips That Can Save
Your Butt-Lifesaving Advice From A Firefighter/Paramedic”,
“I Won’t Be In To Work Today – Preventing Injuries At Home,
Work and Play” along with four other books.
In My Teens I
Lived a Very Exciting / Dangerous Lifestyle
Like many of
you, at times, I took stupid chances. I was lucky. Some of
my friends died from drowning, motor vehicle collisions and
falls, and a couple of others were horribly burned while
playing with gasoline. Each one of the deaths and injuries
was unnecessary, and they all resulted from bad choices.
Now I’m the one telling the teens to be safe…
After some of our escapades the police and paramedics
told us we were lucky to be alive. Now I am the one
telling the teens they’re lucky to be alive after doing
some of the things they have done! I’ve been on both
sides of the fence.
Here’s Why I
Wrote The Booklet and Made The Video
I have two
beautiful young daughters, and the thought of something
happening to them scares the heck out of me. I never thought
I could love somebody as much as I love my kids. If
something happened to them, I’d be devastated.
I’ve Seen Many Teens Die
years I’ve attended dozens of scenes where young people have
been killed. I didn’t envy the police who had to knock on
the door of the parents and give them the bad news.
I’ve brought teens into the emergency department in critical
condition and within the hour, they were pronounced dead.
The emergency physician would then lead the parents into a
separate room to give them the bad news. The parents would
always ask to see their child’s body. When you hear the
cries and sobs of the parents, it’s heartbreaking and you’ll
never forget it.
Your organization can help prevent these tragedies from
I’ve written a
great little booklet called “The Dangerous Years, 15-24 – Tips
to Help You Make It Through Them In One Piece”. It’s for teens
and people in their early twenties and covers situations they
may find themselves in many times throughout the year.
The booklet gives teenagers information to remind them to make
the right choices.

The 32 page
booklet is easy to read and promotes safety and making the right
choices. There are several cartoons that help reinforce the
Here are the messages in the booklet:
Only About Life And Death – all too often teenagers
presume if they are in an accident they will either live or
die. They fail to stop and think about the quality of life
they may be left with if injured. Taking 600 stitches to the
face and losing every tooth in their mouth, being paralyzed
from the neck down, or spending months in a burn unit are
other situations they could find themselves in.
– what really happens to a person involved in a rollover? Why
you should really wear a seatbelt. Speed kills — it really
– getting so drunk that you throw up all over yourself or your
friends isn’t cool. It’s not only drinking and driving that
can get you into trouble but anything else that needs
coordination or decision-making capabilities. Did you know
that many people die after throwing up when drunk? Learn how
to prevent this from happening.
To Protect Your Head – for all ages, head injuries are the
leading cause of death due to trauma (force upon the body).
You have to protect your head. Learn what happens to your
brain and how your life can be changed if you think you are
too cool to wear a helmet or hard hat.
Injuries Do More Than Kill – Learn what your spinal cord
does, how it can be injured and how permanent the injury is.
Also learn how your independence may end as a result of a
spinal cord injury.
The Bird Can Be Flipping Dangerous – Every year people die
or are seriously injured because they decided to challenge
someone or accept a challenge from someone else to fight. It
just isn’t worth it. You may win the fight but still lose out
Not A Lemming – It’s tough dealing with peer pressure, but
you have to realize if you follow your friends’ risky behavior
you can be hurt. Think before you blindly follow your friends.
You do have your own brain, use it!
Choice – making the wrong choices now can rob you of the
opportunity of making your own choices for the rest of your
life. If you are seriously injured, the nursing staff will be
making your choices for you, such as when you go to bed, when
you get up, what you eat and even when you go to the bathroom.
Each one of the
chapters is a very easy read with cartoons. The reader will be
able to relate to each safety message.
Your Organization Can Add A Customized Message On The Front
Page…Show Teens That Your Organization Cares
This can be done
in two ways. For smaller orders you can print a message onto a
label, then just add it onto the first page of the book (which
is left blank). For larger orders, we will have it printed right
onto the first page. This will require a separate print run.

already help out the teens. But don’t you think a teen’s
