Minot firefighters earn Heartsaver Hero awards

Firefighters honored

Capt. Devin Walter, Senior Firefighter Travis Elich, Firefighter Jason West, and Senior Firefighter Philip Anderson were honored with the Heartsaver Hero award from the American Heart Association. 


Four members of the Minot Fire Department and three members of Community Ambulance were honored at the Dec. 3 City Council Meeting for their efforts in saving the life of a 21-year-old Minot woman.

On Nov. 7, Minot Fire Department, Minot Police Department, and Community Ambulance were called to a southwest Minot location to assist a young woman in cardiac arrest.

The Minot Fire Department crew arrived on scene in three minutes, 27 seconds. Bystanders had started CPR and had administered one AED shock to the patient. Firefighters took over patient care when they arrived on scene, and the patient had a pulse when the ambulance arrived on scene. She was taken by ambulance to the hospital, and has since recovered.

Capt. Devin Walter, Senior Firefighter Travis Elich, Firefighter Jason West, and Senior Firefighter Philip Anderson were honored with the Heartsaver Hero award from the American Heart Association. 

Community Ambulance employees Christopher South, Carter Gage, and Shayanne Tescher were also honored with Heartsaver Hero awards.
