Life Saving Commendation


On 1-3-14 R-1 (LoCoco and Severance) and E-1 (Harvey, Trupiano, Wonson D, Wonson B.) all responded to a cardiac arrest with by-stander CPR in progress.  The gentleman was successfully resuscitated and subsequently went home with his faculties intact.  This crew was given a great opportunity to make a difference and they did.  Their outstanding resuscitation efforts resulted in a life saved and I want to commend them for a job well done.   The GFD is making regular CPR saves above the traditional averages and the credit for this extends to the community for calling 911 and performing CPR until our arrival and for the dedication to excellence demonstrated by our personnel.

I want to thank these personnel and they will be provided with a written Life Saving Commendation.

Best regards,

Eric Smith
