Paramedics Have a Heart (Monitor) For Children

When Sparta has a Block Party, it’s always a good time.

Recently, paramedics from Rockford Ambulance showed up at one to demonstrate their knowledge and equipment. The children in the crowd had fun and learned about how paramedics help people in distress.

The paramedics hooked up some of the kids to a heart monitor.

Cardiac Arrest

Rockford Ambulance was featured on Fox 17 News for a Cardiac Arrest survival story. Our Paramedics had the pleasure to meet the woman whom they helped save. Click the link below to read the story and watch the video.
