Citizen Life Safety Award During EMS Week

Fond du Lac Fire/Rescue is honoring a construction foreman for his efforts and quick action that saved a co-worker’s life. Scott Buehlman received the Citizen Life Safety Award at the EMS Week Open House on Tuesday. Buehlman called 9-1-1 and performed CPR after Jeff Lorenz went into cardiac arrest on the jobsite. After being taken to a hospital by paramedics, Lorenz survived and eventually returned to work.  Chief Peter O’Leary says this case is proof that early CPR actually works in life or death situations.
