The Lombard Fire Department was recently awarded Elmhurst Hospital’s Emergency Medical Services (EMS) “Run of the Month” for July-August 2022!

On Aug. 3, Lombard Fire Department Paramedics Ryan Carlson, Bob Hopper, Brennen Legan, Joel Montiel and Joe Shark were dispatched to a residence where a 61-year-old male was complaining of chest pain. The patient was moved to the ambulance where his condition changed and he became unresponsive. Testing showed the patient was experiencing a heart attack. Paramedics treated the patient with CPR, defibrillation, cardioversion, breathing assistance and medication. He was transported to the Elmhurst Hospital Emergency Department for further evaluation and treatment. The patient was released from Elmhurst Hospital to a rehabilitation facility 19 days later.

This run was selected because of behavior exceeding the call of duty in the field and excellent communication.
