Kevin Hazzard's Paramedic Life

Here's my conversation with Kevin Hazzard, who spent 10 years as a paramedic in Atlanta, Georgia, and writes about his adventures in "A Thousand Naked Strangers: A Paramedic's Wild Ride To the Edge And Back." Among the questions I asked him:
  • Is it fun to drive an ambulance?
  • Do drivers always get out of the way?
  • Were most of the people you helped naked?
  • What did you learn about the American health care system?
  • Did people ever used you for rides as if you were an Uber driver?
  • Did you ever administer Naloxone, the drug that supposedly reverses a heroin overdose?
  • Did you encounter people who fought you because they did not want to go to the hospital?
  • What was it like to do your job in some of the city's most dangerous neighborhoods?
