The evening of Wednesday, March 14 was one that the crew from Fire Station 39, North Point, B-Shift will remember for a long time. It was also a night to remember for a local family!
At approximately 10:50 p.m., the crew from 39-B helped to deliver a bouncing baby girl at a local home! The surprised parents were not planning to invite a bunch of paramedics and firefighters to share their big day. However, the healthy baby girl had other ideas and decided she was ready to meet Mom, Dad and big sister – right then and there!
After the birth, mother and baby were transported to an area hospital. 39-B worked the rest of the night and had Thursday off.
Today, the crew was back to work. They decided to visit the family at the maternity ward and brought along a card, gift card, balloon and baby (toy) bunny! Captain Randy Bittinger and crew took a goody bag for big sister as well!
Baby, Mom, Dad and big sister are enjoying this new day with a fun story to tell for years to come!
Congratulations and job well done: Master Technician Brian Roberts, Technician Sue Varholy Tomczak, Technician Israel Lopez, Firefighter/EMT Kyler Rodgers, Firefighter/Paramedic Nels Jorgenson and Captain Randy Bittinger!
