The full interview with bonus material:
Seeing an ambulance travelling the roads across Northumberland County is not unusual. Paramedics attend about 23,000 calls a year. But have you ever wondered about the person inside? What has happened? How serious is it? Will they survive?
In this interview, you will hear some answers to those questions. Last week, first responders and the people they saved came together for a special evening called Survivor Night. Fifty-one people, including paramedics, dispatchers, firefighters, and the people they saved and their families, met to recognize the life-saving work.
You are going to hear from Matthew Rollwagen, one of the paramedics. He will share a story about one cardiac patient whose life was saved. And he will tell us what it was like to meet him once again now that he has recovered.
