Salem Fire Chief Mike Niblock recounts that Joseph, a Straub seventh grade student, who recently received CPR training at his middle school from an off-duty Tualatin Valley Firefighter Paramedic, acted quickly and appropriately when his father collapsed at home.
"Joseph guided his mother through the appropriate way to calmly, strongly and rapidly provide CPR to his 47-year old father until Salem Fire Paramedics and Falck Ambulance crews arrived," said Niblock.
Within five minutes, Salem Fire Paramedics could use an Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) to successful restore a normal heart rhythm to the patient. He was transported to the hospital and made a full recovery with no neurological damage.
Chief Niblock added that the Salem Fire Foundation raises money to fund Hands-Only CPR and AED Training for all eighth graders in the Salem/Keizer School district and surrounding area private schools. There are approximately 2,700 students trained by Salem firefighters/paramedics each year.
