FDL Firefighters Applauded For Life Saving Effort


It was a rare night filled with applause Wednesday evening for Fond du Lac firefighters and paramedics. First, Division Chief Tom Wendt was honored with a proclamation at the City Council meeting for his 35 years of service to the City, which led to a nice round of applause. Lieutenant Joe Maramonte says he and some other firefighters who attended that event were just getting back to the fire station on South Main Street when they got another call, just across the street from the station. A man was having dinner at Sebastian’s Steak House and was choking on some food. Paramedics were able to dislodge the food and take the man to St. Agnes Hospital. They probably saved his life; a fact that didn’t escape the attention of restaurant patrons, which led to the second round of applause that night. Fond du Lac Fire Dept photo.

I, too, give applause to the firefighters and paramedics for saving this man's life, along with all the other peoples lives they save and the heroic jobs they do. But I would also like to applaud the friend of this man who first tried to dislodge the item from the man's throat (I only wish I know the man's name) using the Heimlick move, and to Mike Ferge who, after the Heimlick move didn't work, performed CPR on this man until paramedics and fire fighters arrived, supply the much needed labor to keep the blood flowing.
