On the morning of June 16, 2013, while en-route to their assigned area of the fire, an IHC crewmember collapsed and quickly became unresponsive. Another crew member immediately assessed the patient and confirmed his breathing and heart rate had stopped. Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) from two crews began Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and one of the IHC Superintendents initiated a medical emergency response via radio. Paramedics from the spike camp were deployed to the scene. An Automated Electrical Defibrillator (AED) was successfully utilized reestablishing a pulse in the patient. After medically stabilizing the patient, he was carried by stokes litter approximately one quarter of a mile to H 1 and transported by air ambulance to St. Anthony’s Hospital in Lakewood, Colorado.
