TWO WAKE NEW HOPE FD CREWS RECEIVE AWARDS AT ANNUAL CARDIAC ARREST SAVE CEREMONY

May 21, 2019 – Every year Wake County EMS awards crews who perform an instrumental role in saving the lives of people in cardiac arrest. These patients are called into 911 not breathing and with no pulse, and through the combined work of the 911 dispatchers, Fire Department and Police Department First Responders, and Hospital personnel, the patient is able to survive, and are invited back at the annual event to meet the responders who (literally) saved their life.

This year, two Wake New Hope crews were recognized at the ceremony: Station 1 A-Shift, for a code save in April at I540 and Capital Blvd, and Station 1 B-shift for a code save in October on Capital Blvd.

DEC 27, 2018 – ENGINE 1 FIRST DUE TO CAR VS BUILDING ON N NEW HOPE RD

At 1014, RW911 dispatched Wake New Hope Engine 1, Car 1, and Eastern Wake Rescue 11 to 2831 N. Hew Hope Road, in unincorporated Wake County within the City of Raleigh, for a motor vehicle crash with a subjected pinned.

Car 1 was first on scene, reporting a single car MVA, with a car into an occupied house with the driver pinned. Because it was in the Wake New Hope’s Fire District, Rescue 14 was added to the call. Engine 1 arrived just behind Car 1 along with Wake EMS APP Medic 93. Car 1 requested RW911 to send the closest engine to the scene (Raleigh FD Engine 21), and when they became  available, Raleigh FD Rescue 1 was special called to the scene to assist with stabilizing the structure.

New Hope and Raleigh Fire units were able to extricate the driver by removing the driver’s side door, and freeing him from the dash board that had significant intrusion into the passenger compartment. They turned him over to the waiting Wake EMS crew. Once that was completed, RFD Rescue 1’s crew continued to work on stabilizing the structure around the vehicle. Despite the house being occupied, none of the residents were injured in the crash.

All units stood by until the tow truck removed the vehicle from the house, at which point Raleigh building inspector assessed the damage to the house and deemed it unsafe.
