Clark County Fire & Rescue recognized multiple community heroes on Thursday, May 9 at Fire Station 21. Local citizen Suzanne Koller, CRESA Dispatch Supervisor Julie Walker and Ridgefield police officers Tyler King and Andrew Marvitz all received the Fire Chief’s Life Saving award for providing critical life-saving care to Suzanne’s mother in law during a heart attack. Firefighters, police officers and community members gathered at the fire station for refreshments and conversation just before the ceremony at 5:30 p.m. Prior to the awards being given out, Fire Chief John Nohr stated the importance for everyone to learn cardiopulmonary resuscitation, (CPR), noting CPR is enough to help until more advanced medical care comes. CPR training proved a vital role on March 25 when Kolle noticed her mother-in-law was showing signs of a medical emergency. After her husband made a call to 911, Walker provided Kolle with CPR instructions over the phone.
