ASM’s Tim LaChappelle

On October XX, 2014 Firefighter/EMR Tyler Clark, Firefighter Derrek Kroc, Paramedic Tim LaChappelle and EMT Bob Anderson of ASM Ambulance, responded to a call of a XX year-old female who was having chest pains at 0247 HR. The patient stated that she had been working in the yard during the day and woke up with severe chest pains.

On arrival, the patient was anxiously talking with the responders and then collapsed into cardiac arrest. FF Clark and others immediately started CPR and used a defibrillator to attempt resuscitation. The patient was resuscitated after approximately ten minutes. The patient was transported to the hospital and released to go home seven days later.

Today I present you a certificate for your Extraordinary Personal Actions performed in the line of duty which lead to the successful resuscitation and saving of the life of a citizen of Bolton, CT on October XX, 2014.
