Five are recognized with Fire Department "Citizens Service Award"
At the March 12th meeting Mayor Harold Sanger, the Board of Alderman, and the Fire Department Community Outreach Committee recognized the heroic efforts of 5 individuals during an incident that occurred on June 25, 2018, at the 16th division of the St. Louis County Courts for a victim of cardiac arrest. By performing life-saving efforts on the collapsed individual, including effective CPR and utilization of an automatic external defibrillator their actions led to a successful outcome.
Det. Thomas Taylor, Det. Jonathan Cooper, Sgt. Bill Muller, Travis Martin, and Mark Hammer were awarded the Clayton Fire Department “Citizen’s Service Award.” This is giving in recognition of members of the Clayton community whose actions result in preserving a life or making a substantial difference in life safety preservation within our community.
The Clayton Fire Department would like to take this opportunity to encourage you to learn hands only CPR and download the Pulsepoint Application for your smart phones. The American Heart Association estimates that effective bystander CPR, provided immediately after sudden cardiac arrest, can double or triple a person’s chance of survival.
