It’s a rare occurrence in EMS when CPR is successful to the point where the patient is still alive, breathing, and up walking around eight months later. So, to hear that not one, but two, separate Thomaston residents within a year are alive today because of the interventions of their small-town emergency system, a roomful of officials stand and applaud. Multiple Thomaston EMS, Fire, and Police providers, as well as a dispatcher at Waldo Communications Center, were recognized Monday, July 8, 2024, at the Thomaston Select Board meeting, for their roles in restarting a heartbeat last September and getting that person to the hospital. Sometime in the future, certificates will be issued for the second success story, which has not been officially added to the State’s log since it happened just a few days ago.
