Los Alamos Fire Department (LAFD) was proud to present Station 4-B Shift with a Phoenix award Thursday morning. The Phoenix Award, which began in January of 2017, is awarded to personnel that have been involved in calls where the patient suffered a cardiac arrest, was resuscitated and returned home from the hospital.
LAFD responders dedicate themselves to the community of Los Alamos and train for cardiac events nearly ten times as often as an average fire department. Due to their efforts, a member of our community is alive and well and home with their family, “a phoenix rising from the ashes.” It takes a team approach to save a life, and there is no doubt that Station 4 provides just that.
LAFD would like to thank the following responders:
Captain Gerard Coriz
Driver Paramedic Van Leimer
Firefighter Paramedic Dylan Mahoney
Firefighter Paramedic Dustin Rogers
Firefighter Randall Robles
Firefighter Joshua Urban
Firefighter Shannon Evans
