Two Life Saving Awards Presented to Local Heroes
At the last Board of Fire Commissioners meeting, West Pierce Fire & Rescue recognized not one, but two people with Life Saving Awards.
Mark Sawyer was driving and witnessed a significant collision, which resulted in a victim needing CPR. Mark and two others stopped, called 911 and performed CPR until firefighters could arrive. His heroic actions not only positively impacted the outcome for the patient, but reinforced the need for early CPR when seconds matter most.
