Remember: Triple Zero Heroes Synopsis:
Remember: Triple Zero Heroes takes readers on a journey into the shoes of our emergency service men and women.
Through this reimagined idea of walking a mile in someone’s shoes to understand them, J. E. Miller’s Remember: Triple Zero Heroes follows a young child stepping into different shoes attending an Anzac Parade to experience life through another’s eyes, for just a moment.
The child becomes a fire fighter, a police officer with a sniffer dog, a paramedic, a mounted police officer and an SES flood boat operator.
The Remember series teaches young readers about empathy while giving them insight into the lives of people from the defence forces, the emergency services, and more.
We are thrilled that Remember Triple Zero Heroes has shortlisted in Speech Pathology Australia’s Book of the Year 2023 award! The winner is announced later this year.

Remember: Triple Zero Heroes – A deeper dive:
Some of these stories are based on real life experiences of the author’s close associates, and she has even included one of her own experiences. I wonder if you can pick which one…
More than a book about just who these people are and what they do, this story gets to the heart of why they always deserve our respect, empathy and gratitude.
This story will fill you with the Australian spirit.
Reviews for Remember: Triple Zero Heroes:
‘A wonderful narration of walking in the shoes of humble and dedicated people, Remember: Triple Zero Heroes generously acknowledges the sacrifices, skills and commitment of emergency services personnel.’Mike Wassing, Deputy Commissioner, QLD Fire and Emergency Services
‘As a former volunteer rural firefighter, I was thrilled to read this beautiful book. Our emergency services personnel are integral to the fabric of Australia, and this commemorative book should be in every school and library in Australia. Exquisitely written, beautifully illustrated. The author’s approach of running a community illustration competition, and then writing a story to match the winners’ drawings, was novel and exciting, and she nailed it.’Cate Sawyer, Author.
‘A fantastic book that explores themes of service, care and sacrifice while communicating the challenges that first responders face daily in a captivating narrative courted with colourful illustrations. 10/10, highly recommend.’Ryan Elliott, 14-years-old.

More about the Remember series.
J. E. Miller wrote the first in her ‘Remember’ series as a way of showing gratitude and honouring those who served and continue to serve in the defence forces, but she wanted to do it with more than just words.
She created a project that invited illustrators to donate their art via a competition, to accompany the many heart-felt stories in the book.
Artists of all ages and experiences from Australia and the UK, and even the veterans themselves, entered the illustration competition. Proceeds from book sales help past and present soldiers and their support networks.
With close family connections to the defence force, the transition from defence member’s stories to those of the domestic services was natural for Miller, who has served with the State Emergency Service for the past 13 years.
During this time, she has been part of critical incident response teams, attending natural disasters in Brisbane, Grantham, Tully, Bundaberg, and Kuranda.
She has been involved in missing person and forensic searches, rescues, and body retrievals, and has been awarded a meritorious commissioner’s commendation, state meritorious service citation, and national services medal.
These days she spends most of her time within SES training others in communication, risk assessment, leadership, first aid, working at heights, and land search.
Miller holds a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature, Post Graduate Diploma of Education and Post Graduate Diploma of Psychology.
