Doctor Eugene Nagel, M.D. - Miami Florida.
Dr. Eugene Nagel is a pioneer in the field of Emergency Medical Services. He was Medical Director for the City of Miami Fire Department's rescue operation from 1964 until he left Miami in 1974. During those 10 years, he developed the first paramedic program utilizing telemetry and voice medical control rather than the then practice of riding either a physician or nurse with the paramedics.*
In this photo, Dr. Nagel is autographing the Museum's paramedic backboard on May 7th, 2010. All Los Angeles County Fire Department Paramedic are invited to autograph the backboard. Read more about our backboard in the Artifacts section.
