A Very Special First Birthday

By: Captain II Bill Lynch
Station Commander – Fire Station 13, Dunn Loring

Over the weekend, firefighters from Fire Station 13, Dunn Loring, went to a very special birthday party. What made this party a little more special than most was the fact that Jim was able to attend his daughters first birthday! On October 21st, Jim went into cardiac arrest. 911 was called and Engine and Medic 13 responded. For over 25 minutes he remained pulse-less, eventually responding to cardio pulmonary treatments.

Thanks to the training and efforts of the firefighters and paramedics on B-Shift, Jim was able to celebrate his daughters first birthday.

Jim was presented with a Fire Station 13 challenge coin and Charlotte was given a Fire Station 13 uniform patch for her baby book. 13 is definitely a lucky number for this family!

Happy Birthday Charlotte and we wish you both many more. This is why we do what we do.
