Sunday, August 20th started as a normal day for the first responders of Northern Berks EMS, Northern Berks Regional Police Department, and Company 12 Blandon Fire Department. A 911 call was received a reported cardiac arrest. At that time a system designed to save lives was set into motion. Bystander CPR was initiated immediately, Police arrived followed by an Advanced Life Support Unit from Northern Berks EMS station 2 and Fire Department QRS from Blandon Fire Department. Due to the nature of the call, an assist from Northern Berks EMS station 1 arrived and this team of professionals worked together to bring life-saving skills to the patient. When they arrived at the hospital the patient was awake and talking. The patient was immediately transferred to the Cath lab at Penn State Health Saint Joseph. The patient was released after a brief stay to their home to recover. It is because of this team work that these professionals make an impact in our community each day.
