At the May 17th annual Westchester Regional EMS Council Awards Ceremony, several members of the Croton-on-Hudson Fire Department received a “Unit Citation” for their actions taken to assist Croton On Hudson Emergency Medical Services and Ossining Volunteer Ambulance Corps at a medical emergency last August. Croton Fire was called by EMS to help remove a bariatric patient from their home who was experiencing a life-threatening medical emergency. FD & EMS personnel worked together to remove the patient - using a rope, ladder and Stokes basket - into an Ambulance where a Paramedic and EMTs helped render care that ultimately saved that person’s life.
Awarded this Unit Citation from the CFD were:
PAF Senator Bjorge; Deputy Chief Phil Dinkler; Deputy Chief Tom Dinkler; Captain Jim Ferguson; Lieutenant John Ghegan; Deputy Chief John Munson; Engineer Frank Pusatere; Firefighter Chris Rinaldi; Lieutenant Art Roosa III; Deputy Chief Frank Streany; Deputy Chief William Vlad
