Guy H. Haskell

Dr. Haskell has been involved in EMS since 1983 and has served as a paramedic in four states, in the street and emergency department, ICU and pediatric advanced transport team. Editor and author of five books and numerous articles, including the EMS Pearls of Wisdom Series of exam preparation texts published by Jones and Bartlett, Haskell has worked to bridge the theories of academic emergency medicine and the practice of EMS, the world of the trauma center and the realities of the street. An active paramedic, firefighter, educator, lawyer and consultant, Haskell has a national reputation as writer and educator. He holds the PhD and JD from Indiana University, and served on the faculties of Oberlin College, Emory University, and the George Washington University Medical School. He is a paramedic at Indianapolis EMS, has his own law practice, and serves as a firefighter with Benton Township Volunteer Fire Department. Haskell is Clinical Editor of EMS for Gannett Healthcare Group, and founder and Director of Emergency Medical and Safety Services Consultants, LLC. He is a Fifth-Degree Black Belt and Chief Instructor of Aikido at Indiana University, Master Scuba Diver Trainer with the Professional Association of Dive Instructors, and FAA Certified Commercial Pilot and Flight Instructor. He is married with three children, a dog, two hamsters, and a 1979 Vespa P200E. Currently, he is trying to figure out how to put power steering on a 1953 Chevy pickup.
