NBVFRC Member Saves Co-Worker

September 23rd, 2015 — Kevin Ege, an active volunteer with our station was able to use his EMT skills at his full time job. Kevin’s coworkers at Akamai Technologies in Reston, alerted him to a medical emergency involving one of their own.

As Kevin’s training went to work he grabbed the newly purchased Automated External Defibrillator (AED). He assessed his coworker and determined he wasn’t breathing and had no pulse. Kevin directed employees to begin CPR while he setup the AED. Employees were unable to alert 9-1-1 for some time due to a problem with the phone system.

After delivering a shock to his Co-worker another employee was able to reach 9-1-1 on his cell phone. By the time the ambulance had arrived, Kevin and his fellow employees succeeded in their efforts and their coworker was alert and breathing on his own, and was able to return to work on the 14th.
