Bullhead City Police Emergency Services Dispatchers Angie McCullough and Laura Reyes, as well as Fort Mojave Mesa Firefighters were recently presented the Zoll Clinical Life Saving Award for their combined efforts in saving the life of a local man.

Due to the T-CPR Life-Links Protocol Implementation and training, 911-dispatchers recognized the need for immediate CPR, gave instruction, and had compressions started in 120 seconds or less. All CPR calls are quality evaluated every month by Jay MacDonald of Fort Mojave Fire and Kevin Gifford of Bullhead City Fire with feedback given to each dispatcher. Data shows the best outcomes require CPR be initiated prior to EMS arrival.

The patient was in cardiac arrest (asystole) when the Fort Mojave Fire crews arrived, with a family member performing CPR. He was treated on scene for about 22 minutes before return of pulses. He was discharged neurologically intact a few days later and met the 30-day post discharge Utstein Criteria, which is the gold standard for survivability in pre-hospital resuscitation.
