Quick Response of Emergency Responders Saves a Local Life

We often don't get to meet the people we help or see the outcome of those we save. Call it a miracle or whatever you believe in but Christopher Gualtieri is alive today because of the quick response from our responders and the dispatcher, the first first responder, that's never seen. But we also can't for get Adlai, Chris and Deanna's son. He too is a hero. Last July Chris was involved in an accident at his residence. He suffered numerous lacerations from metal after an explosion. Malarie stayed on the line with giving multiple instructions to the responders and comforting the caller. Multitasking is an amazing gift. While on the phone Chris and his son were saying goodbyes. He didn't think he was going to make it. You see his son Adlai had taken every piece of clothing off but his shoes and boxers to stop the bleeding. Major veins and arteries we cut. So the picture above shows 911 does work and the gratitude we all have for each other. Chris and his family wanted to meet the dispatcher that saved his life. Thank you Gualtieri Family for your appreciation and gratitude. You made everyone's day being able to walked into our department. It's an overwhelming feeling when you've saved a life! We have a great group that goes above and beyond.
