Lifesaver Award
On the morning of March 30, 2009 at 7:11am, the Felton Community Fire Company was dispatched for a person not breathing, just outside of town. The first arriving EMS unit arrived on location to find a male patient not breathing and in cardiac arrest. The crew delivered one shock using an automated external defibrillator. Minutes later a crew of firefighters arrived to assist with compressions and ventilations. The patient was loaded and transported to the hospital where aggressive treatment was continued. Today, the patient has since recovered 100% and is now enjoying his life with family and friends. The quick and professional response of the following members saved this persons life: Dale Roberts Ryan L. Whittington Rodney S. Simons Donald Killen Donald Woisoki Jimmy Moxley Mike Rains Kevin Galyean A special thanks to Terry L. Killen, Vice President who organized the banquet and Master of Ceremonies David Wood.
