HARRISON — Quick action by first responders last week likely saved the life of a person at a village of Harrison church who wasn’t breathing and had no pulse.
According to a social media post shared Thursday, Harrison First Responders responded to Christ The Rock Community Church after being called for help.
When they arrived, crew members immediately began CPR and cardiac life support measures.
Because of their quick actions, the patient regained a pulse prior to being transported to the hospital.
When responding to someone having a cardiovascular emergency, the actions taken within the first few moments can make the difference between life and death, according to the post.
When Harrison Fire Rescue members participate in a successful resuscitation, they are presented with a certificate of commendation and a “Life Save” pin to reinforce the significance of their accomplishment.
EMR’s Jungen, Kazik, Pompa, Simons, Trofka, and Deputy Hersil were commended for their life-saving actions.
