Kingston emergency personnel recognized for life-saving efforts
Both suffered heart conditions that could have killed them, but they survived thanks to the quick action of Kingston fire and rescue personnel and paramedics from Exeter Hospital.
The emergency personnel who responded to the calls were honored at a special ceremony Monday night.
“To acquire the outcome we got on both of these calls, it really identifies the teamwork that went into the calls, from somebody calling 911 to getting emergency services started,” Seaman said.
“They were right there right away,” she said.
The Kingston and Exeter Hospital medical personnel who responded were Seaman, Graham Pellerin, Bill Pellerin, Karyn Maxwell, Rich Abelli and Kevin Jessel.
Her late husband was a member of the fire department for more than 40 years and was instrumental in getting the town’s ambulance in operation, she said.
Coworkers performed CPR until Kingston police and rescue personnel arrived and her pulse was restored with a defibrillator before Exeter Hospital paramedics took her to the hospital.
Easy-to-use automated external defibrillators, or AEDs, are becoming more common in public places and are an important live-saving tool, according to Wharton.
