On Tuesday morning Deputy Chief Wells and Sgt. Fuller attended a ceremony in Hockessin to meet a cardiac arrest survivor. The efforts that Deputy Chief Wells, Sgt. Fuller and FF Buddy performed that day had a direct and positive effect on saving a life.
On October 30th, Engine 25-2 (M.Wells, B.Fuller, T.Buddy) transferred to cover Hockessin Fire Company while their members and staff attended an event. The crew had just arrived at Station 19 when they were sent to a medical emergency at the St Mary’s of Assumption Church. The engine arrived to initiate care when the patient suddenly went into Cardiac Arrest. CPR was initiated and the AED was applied by the crew, and the New Castle County paramedics arrived a few moments later. The patient was breathing on her own when she was transported to the Hospital.
