Going the extra mile

On January 30th @03:30 Stanford Heights was activated for a delta response medical with a report of a patient suffering from chest pain, firefighter/EMTS John Reynolds and David TenEyck responded to initiate patient care, Mohawk ambulance service paramedics arrived shortly after to take over care and transport to a local hospital. Both members stayed on scene to clear snow at the patients house to lessen the burden for the patient after they are discharged. It’s fine young volunteers like this that keeps SHFD running, strong work men!
