They had a job to do, and they did it well, and because of that, a Walnut Creek resident is alive today.

The fire crew from station #7 on Walnut Ave. in Walnut Creek was recognized today by the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors for saving the life of Walnut Creek resident Robert Hansen, who suffered cardiac arrest.

Great job, #7, and thank you.

This is a fantastic example of the entire EMS system in Contra Costa County working together to help save a life. From the 911 call taker, to the police officer who provided initial CPR, to all of the ConFire and AMR EMT’s and paramedics who were on scene, my hat goes off. A job well done highlighting an EMS system that works.
