In this very special two-part episode of the Disaster Podcast we are joined by Author, paramedic, firefighter and 9-11 survivor Steve Kanarian. Steve chats with host Jamie Davis, the Podmedic, and Sam Bradley about his book “The Downwind Walk: A USAR Paramedic’s Experiences After the Terrorist Attacks on September 11, 2001.” (Click here for the link to the Kindle eBook version.) Also joining us on the show are Dr. Joe Holley and paramedic Jim Logan who responded to the Pentagon on 9-11 as part of the Federal USAR team Tennessee Task Force 1.
The Downwind Walk lets you experience the tragic events following the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York on September 11, 2001 through the eyes of an Urban Search and Rescue (USAR) paramedic who went into harm’s way to rescue the victims, which rapidly included many of his “brothers” and “sisters” of the New York Fire Department (NYFD) and Emergency Medical Services (EMS).
Make sure you check out part 2 of this special, emotional episode of the Disaster Podcast out next Thursday!
