Windsor Severance Fire Rescue honored two citizens with its Good Samaritan and Life Saving awards, and recognized two newly ranked lieutenants, during an award ceremony July 30.
Justin Collin and Tim Adams received Good Samaritan Awards for their response during a recent incident in which they were traveling in a semi truck and, from the rearview mirror, saw a car drive off the road and into a canal. The two men stopped and were able to pull the woman from her vehicle.
Chad Mahan received the Good Samaritan Award and his sister, Shauna Johnson, received the Life Saving Award after the two were driving and stopped to help a group of people gathered around a woman on the side of the road. While Mahan relayed information to dispatchers, Johnson recognized the need for CPR and began chest compressions on the woman. Thompson Valley Emergency Medical Services Cpt. Mike Larsen arrived on scene and began advanced life support on the woman. She was taken to the hospital, where she awoke three days later with a stent and pacemaker. She has recovered and is now doing fine, Windsor Severance Fire Rescue Lt. Dave Godbold said.
WSFR also held a pinning ceremony to recognize Erik Morse and Josh Carnes for being promoted to their new ranks of lieutenants.
