Laurel E.M.S. Providers Honored for their Service


The Sussex County Ambulance Association and Sussex County Emergency Medical Services honored the 64 cardiac arrest survivors.  Recognition was also given to more than 160 Basic Life Support Rescuers, 84 Advanced Life Support Rescuers and 24 Emergency Operations Center Dispatchers, who helped save lives in 2021 and 2022.

Recipients were each presented with Phoenix Awards, symbolic of the mythological bird that is reborn. The ceremony recognized those who participated in what the American Heart Association calls the chain of survival for a victim of cardiac arrest. This includes early notification by 911 dispatchers with instructions on how to perform CPR, early CPR and early use of an automated external defibrillator, followed by early advanced care and transport to a cardiac care facility.

The Laurel Fire Department is very proud to have EMS providers  Kaitlyn Whaley, Jeff Hill, Alyssa Reynolds, Brent Scott, R.C. Short, Jim Furbush and Leah Croy, recognized for their efforts providing cardiac saves during 2021.
