Four Rockingham County Paramedics Receive “Life Saving” Awards

WENTWORTH, NC (April 21, 2020) –
A big congratulations and thank-you to four Rockingham County Paramedics who received "Life Saving" awards, Tuesday, April 21st! "Life Saving" awards are given to EMS personnel whose efforts sustained the life of a patient until patient care was transferred to a receiving medical facility. These calls typically involve cardiac cases but could also extend to critical trauma or other calls where the patient would have a minimal chance of survival without the interventions of the EMS personnel. The four Rockingham County recipients are: Paramedic Zach Calhoun, Paramedic Matt Jones, Paramedic James Bullins, and Paramedic Chris Minor. They received a Certificate of Achievement for their Life Saving efforts and a "Life Saving" coin, from Emergency Services Director Rodney Cates.
The coin was specifically designed with a "Flat Line" heart rhythm which converts to a "Heart Beat" signifying the Return of Spontaneous Circulation. The 9-1-1 Telecommunicators are also eligible for "Life Saving" awards through the "Post Dispatch Instructions" that they are certified to provide to 9-1-1 callers.
