Steve Harris

Steve turned 60 in December and joined the West Midlands Ambulance Service in 1978 - he's been with the team for 34 years.

He qualified as a paramedic in 1994 and then joined the bike unit in 1996. One of his most memorable moments was delivering twin babies to a mum who did not know she was expecting twins in the late 80s.

Steve is a big fan of Land Rovers and does a lot of off-road or green-lane driving. He also loves motorsport, F1 and MotoGP. In his spare time he plays golf.

Outside of work he currently owns a Honda Fireblade and an ex-paramedic Honda Pan European, but is looking to buy a BMW R1200GS...
