VIDEO: Firefighters in Dallas County are teaching the public CPR after saving a Fair Grove woman’s life. The Southern Dallas County Fire Protection District (SDCFPD) Chief Dave Moore said his crews responded to a call recently where a 76-year-old woman with diabetes collapsed inside her home and needed CPR right away. The woman’s daughter, Tammy Mayfield, said she and her husband followed the 911 dispatcher’s directions and performed proper CPR on her mom. “It’s still hard to do, especially when it’s someone you love,” Mayfield said. “But it has to be done.” Chief Moore said an EMT arrived at the house around 15 minutes after being called. Mayfield and her husband were able to continue chest compressions until help arrived.
