Cody Harrold, senior fire fighter Matt Lutz and fire fighter Jesse Clark, along with Ada County paramedics Conner Bates, Janny Wing and Tiffany Tam, responded to a 52-year-old woman who was code blue. The teams “worked seamlessly together and after CPR and three shocks they regained a pulse.” Lutz was precepting Clark for the paramedic program and Clark was able to administer medications and Lutz took care of the airway. Capt. Harrold performed two rounds of chest compressions until application of the Lucas device (that provides automated chest compression) and paramedic Bates was lead medic initiating the shocks. The three Boise fire fighters and three Ada County Paramedics received an emergency medical services award on Wednesday, Aug. 29 for their valor. Boise Fire Chief Dennis Doan and Division Chief Howell were on hand at the award ceremony where they received the prestigious Life Saving Award from the Boise Fire Department and the City of Boise.
