When Randy Young and his Rockingham County EMS partner, Tasha Pruitt, responded to a 2019 bus wreck involving 18 children and two adults, it was their training that guided them.
In a little over one hour, they triaged and transported all 20 patients.
Prior to that, the pair answered a call where a 14-day-old child was not breathing. They regained the child’s pulse and saved her life. On March 13, Young was one of four Rockingham County service personnel who were recognized for dedicating their lives to helping others. They were honored by the Midway/Monroeton VFW Post 8297 and Auxiliary.
