Roseville FD Celebrates National EMS Week
The City of Roseville Fire Department celebrates National EMS Week. This week is to honor the EMS practitioners serving our communities across the nation.
Throughout national EMS Week, Kaiser Permanente Roseville Medical Center honors Roseville firefighters and paramedics for their heroic efforts in saving lives.
This year Kaiser honored Firefighter-paramedic Eric Suarez and his crew, for their actions on a June 30th, 2013 incident. On this call, the crew responded to reports of a 53 year old female in cardiac arrest. The quick response from the crew and actions by FFP Suarez successfully revived the patient. This case was a perfect example of a commonly practiced term called Chain of Survival. The crew was response ready, had very fast travel time to the incident location, and went to work initiating CPR and defibrillating the patient.
She was transported to Kaiser Roseville where she underwent integrated post-cardiac arrest care. All of these measures combined to allow the patient to leave the hospital just a few short days after admission.
The Roseville Fire Department is proud to lead the region in response readiness. Each of the eight strategically located fire stations are equipped to provide Advanced Life Support (ALS) care with a Firefighter paramedic present. This story is a great example of the benefit of this level of service.
The award was present by Dr. Joe Morris who spent over 15 years serving as a paramedic prior to becoming a doctor. Individual responders received a plaque, while the agency itself also received a plaque that will include the names of new honorees every year.

The City of Roseville encourages all resident to know the signs of cardiac arrest and immediately activate the emergency response system by calling 911.
