Middletown Council Honors EMS Crews
Middletown Township Council honored emergency crews who helped to revive a man in cardiac arrest.
Middletown Township Council honored emergency crews at its Monday meeting who had helped to revive a man in cardiac arrest.
In November, fire and emergency officials responded to a cardiac arrest in the Riddlewood section of Middletown Township and were able to revive the victim, Henry Neeb.
"More often than not, these stories don't end well and frankly, I'm very excited you're here," Kirchgasser said to Neeb.
Kirchgasser said the Lenni Heights and Lima teams were instrumental in saving Neeb's life.
"On behalf of a very grateful township and I know an extremely grateful Mr. Neeb, we thank you all for your literally life saving efforts," Kirchgasser said. "Knowing that these volunteers—who for no other reason decide to do what they do because it's the right thing to do, and spend hours training to do it—make such a difference in our community and I think it's fantastic."
Lenni Chief Ken Collins, Lenni Captain Ian Tully, Lima Chief Bill Cairns, Lima Captain Mike Groover along with Lenni firefighter Jake Bonney, Lima firefighter Sean Miller, Lima Assistant Chief George Pettit, Lima firefighter Brian Perakis, Lenni firefighter Vince Soster and Lenni firefighter Eric Warner received certifcates of honor from the township.
