The Prince George’s County Fire/Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Department will wrap up our EMS Week activities with a really great story.
A 17-year-old male suffered sudden cardiac arrest while playing basketball at a high school in Brandywine. Family and a bystander, an off-duty Fairfax County Firefighter/Paramedic, started CPR. An automatic external defibrillator (AED) on hand at the school was retrieved and applied. Firefighter/Medics arrived and provided advanced life support and transported the teen to a nearby hospital. Fortunately, the teen has survived.
The teen and his family would like to thank everyone in person. Most everyone will meet for the very first time.
The Fire/EMS Department will present Emergency Services and Fire Chiefs Awards.
