At the June meeting of the Chester County FOP Lodge #11, Cindy Amoroso and Tara DiDomenico, both Telecommunicators with the Chester County Department of Emergency Services, were presented with a Lifesaving Award. Here is the details of their lifesaving incident:
On April 22, 2019 at 1841 hrs., Telecommunicator DiDomenico took a call for a cardiac arrest in progress for a 70 yr. old male who was doing yard work and collapsed. Tara gave CPR instructions to the caller. Officer Robert McCarron, West Pikeland PD and Uwchlan Ambulance were dispatched to the scene by Telecommunicator Amoroso, who kept them informed of the activity at the scene. When Officer McCarron arrived, he instructed the caller to continue CPR while he was placed the AED pads on the victim. The AED advised that a shock was needed. The victim was transported to Paoli Hospital and was discharged home after a full recovery.
Congratulations to all for their life saving skills to ensure that the victim made a full recovery.
