Heartsaver Hero Awards
On December 21, 2022, Sachse Fire-Rescue responded to a chest pain incident. While transporting the patient to the hospital, he experienced sudden cardiac arrest. Recognizing the situation, the crew on Ambulance 1 began high-performance cardiopulmonary resuscitation (HPCPR), protected the patient's airway, provided defibrillation, and placed him on the Lucas Device. At the hospital, the patient was placed on ECMO and moved to the Cath Lab. All of these actions contributed to Mr. Jerry Moon's survival. He was released home and ultimately went back to work three months later.
It was a great moment to present Heartsaver Hero Awards to Firefighter/Paramedic Colton Haynes and Firefighter/EMT Jonathan Lee for their contributions to saving Mr. Moon's life. We have an amazing team at Sachse Fire - Rescue!
