Passaic, NJ - Three Passaic firemen were honored at the September 5th council meeting in Passaic for their life-saving actions during an incident involving an 18-month-old child.
On July 9th of this year, Passaic Engine Company #1 responded to an emergency medical response at 241 Paulison Avenue. Upon arrival, they were faced with a child not breathing and emotional distress from the father and family.
The firefighters immediately took action by placing the child on the floor and beginning rapid primary assessment, finding no pulse. Engine #1 members performed CPR and set up the automated external defibrillator. After four minutes of CPR, a heartbeat was detected and the child began breathing on their own. EMS and paramedics arrived shortly after and took over primary care, transporting the child to Hackensack Medical center.
The quick action of Lt. Pilipski, Firefighter Feliciano and Probationary Firefighter Kenner saved the life of this child, and these firefighters did so with the highest level of professionalism and compassion, maintaining a calm presence during an extremely emotional scene.
The members were commended for their actions in the highest standard of the fire service, for going above and beyond the call of duty to save the life of the 18-month-old child. It was noted that all three members showed a great deal of compassion and support for all the family members during the incident, as well as afterwards. Mayor Hector Lora commended the firefighters by presenting them with life saving pins.
