This is an actual call to Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service. Her husband is in cardiac arrest. Listen as the operator takes this woman through getting her husband on the floor and telling her how to do CPR. He’s not breathing but it’s important she doesn’t give up.
The operator tells her to “Keeping pumping his chest!”
Our former 680 CJOB colleague Michael Grosvenor works as a 911 operator for WFPS. We salute our 911 operators as we mark National Telecommunicators Week.
Grosvenor says when you need to call 911 make sure you provide the address, turn the outdoor light on, give a door code if it’s an apartment or suite and make sure pets are secured away from the door.
