King County paramedic student Kevin Miller calls for equipment while treating a patient outside a Seattle jail. Every paramedic in King County must first go through intense training at the Harborview Medical Center, that features a partnership from the University of Washington and the Seattle Fire Department. Paramedics in King County have earned a reputation for elite training and preparation -- even garnering the tongue-and-cheek moniker 'para-magicians.' Part of that reputation comes from a rigorous 10-month didactic and hands-on training program through the University of Washington. Aaron Hale/Staff
