Steve Farzam has always had a passion to help fellow mankind and is an avid animal lover. As a certified flight paramedic where he was paid to perform his job, he was destined to do more.
On September 1, 2005 Mr. Farzam immobilized with a Disaster Response Team that was comprised of 11 highly trained professionals to respond and aid to those who were victimized by Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans. His base camp was at the Lemar Dixon fairgrounds outside of Baton Rouge Louisiana.
During his 10 day deployment, Mr. Farzam aided FEMA and several other agencies in locating and rescuing humans and animals left behind. He was able to tend to several injured people who would have otherwise waited hours for medical treatment since all of the local hospitals were closed. His team discovered several deceased persons.
Mr. Farzam said, “This was an awful tragedy that was unexplainable, but there were lives that were depending on us”. He went on to say “if given the opportunity I would gladly do it all over again”. Mr. Farzam highly advocates for people to serve their communities as a volunteer.
Mr. Farzam has since taken his experiences of serving others to the hospitality world where he is the Chief Operating Officer for Shore Hotel in Santa Monica California.
