Trooper's AED helps to save life of Westons Mills firefighter

Trooper's AED helps to save life of firefighter

Olean, NY - On April 24, 2013 Troopers out of the Olean barracks were investigating a three car personal injury accident at the intersection of ST-417 and Promised Land Road in the Town of Portville.

Two drivers were injured and taken to Olean General Hospital for treatment.

After both ambulances left the scene and the fire trucks returned to quarters, a few firefighters from the Westons Mills Fire Department remained to assist with traffic control.

While waiting until the tow trucks could remove all of the damaged vehicles, a firefighter collapsed in the roadway, with no pulse and was not breathing.

The remaining firemen rushed to his aid and began CPR while Trooper John Zeigler retrieved an Automated External Defibrilator (AED) from his cruiser.

The AED was hooked up to the fireman, a shock was advised and administered and CPR continued until a pulse and breathing resumed.

The fireman was taken to Olean General Hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.

Thank science he was saved! Lithium batteries, capacitors, adhesives, and microprocessors! Science and the presence of mind to apply it by the people at the scene.

Thanks to scientific progress these devices are getting smaller and cheaper. They are so simple a monkey could almost run one. They have pictures, audible instructions, and automatically determine whether a shock is needed or not.

I plan to have one in my house and have my kids trained in current CPR techniques in case something like this ever happens around my home. Hopefully we will see more saves such as this as these devices proliferate and are more readily available.

And thank GOD that we have people in this world smart enough to use that science to develop the technology to save lives.
