A U.S. Army veteran, Chris Page has been on the EMSA team for a little over a year. Two different people nominated him to receive the award, citing his strong work ethic and excellent patient care. “He is one of the most compassionate medics I have met, and he has an amazing natural intuition of what patients need, whether they are critical or non-critical,” wrote one of the individuals who nominated Chris. One notable call Chris recently ran involved a premature baby born at home, with the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck. The baby was unresponsive, blue and had a slow, weak heartbeat. Chris quickly removed the cord, provided chest compressions and successfully intubated the tiny patient. By the time they arrived at the hospital, the baby had pinked up, become responsive, and had a strong heartbeat.
