A team of Good Samaritans and public safety professionals saved the life of a 5-month-old boy yesterday by performing CPR on a busy Miami highway. Pamela Rauseo realized something was wrong with her nephew, Sebastian de la Cruz, and immediately pulled her car to the left side of the highway. After taking him out of his car seat and realizing that he was not responding, Rauseo “tried to call 911, but I was just so nervous my hands wouldn’t function.” Fortunately, after screaming for help, a handful of people (also stuck in traffic) stopped to help. After a Good Samaritan performed CPR, the infant began breathing again on his own. He stopped breathing once more before being taken in an ambulance to Jackson Memorial Hospital. According to Rauseo, Sebastian de la Cruz is in critical condition today, but is expected to survive.
A North Carolina fire fighter has developed an app for Google Glass that he hopes will enable first responders to save time during an emergency. As a “Google Explorer,” Patrick Jackson is a member of Google’s Glass Explorer Program, which allows him to test the wearable technology before it goes to market. Right now, his app is geared towards assisting fire fighters in the field by displaying important information hands-free at the fire fighter’s command. Relevant and timely information may include: dispatch data, location of emergency, nearest fire hydrants, etc.
Take a look at the dynamic features of the Google Glass app in the video below. How do you think this could help public safety professionals in the future?

Patterson passed away after devoting nearly 40 years to EMS and rescue in Tennessee. Hundreds of people came to mourn Patterson, who profoundly impacted the community as a paramedic, educator, mentor and friend.
Patterson began work as a hospital orderly at age 15. Following that Patterson went on to become a Paramedic, Volunteer Emergency Rescuer, one of the first Lifestar crew members and the MedicOne Medical Response regional director.
Jim Reeves, CEO of MedicOne wrote, “Ronnie dedicated his life to helping others and will be deeply missed.. He has touched the lives of many of us who were privileged to have known him.”

As we venture into a new year this week, we thought this news story from Boston, Massachusetts, was only fitting to share.
On Sunday, December 29, a call came in to Lt. Frank Sheeran of Boston EMS regarding a woman giving emergency childbirth. When he arrived on the scene, the woman had just given birth to her newborn in the front seat of her car.
“The baby was a little slow coming around, a little blue in the chest and extremities but we suctioned the airways out and nose out and stimulated the baby and it started to come around crying, which is good,” Sheeran said.
The new mother and her baby were eventually treated at the hospital and are reportedly doing fine. Sheeran has been working EMS for about 20 years, so this wasn’t his first baby call.
“I’ve delivered probably 13 babies over the course of my career, most of them in houses. When you have a young baby come into the world in the middle of the night and you happen to be there to help them out it’s a good feeling,” he said.
It is stories like these that make the Jones & Bartlett Learning Fire and EMS team proud to create training materials for the public safety professionals that keep us safe each day and remind us how valuable each life truly is. From all of us to you—thank you for your unending dedication and passion to protect and serve our communities. Wishing you all a happy and healthy new year!
Thanksgiving is just one week away! Many of us will spend next Thursday gathering with friends and family in or around the kitchen cooking and enjoying time together. Between juggling work schedules, packing for family get-togethers, and traveling for the holiday, fire safety is often the last thing on our minds.
The United States Fire Administration (USFA) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) are working together to remind us all that home fires are most prevalent in the winter, especially during the holiday season. According to the USFA and NFPA, Thanksgiving is the leading day of the year for home fires involving cooking equipment. By spreading awareness of the potential dangers associated with holiday cooking, these organizations hope that these statistics will change in the future.
So, what can you do to stay fire-safe this Thanksgiving and throughout the holiday season? The USFA and NFPA have put together a ”Thanksgiving Fire Fact Sheet” that you can share with your colleagues, family members, and friends. Many of these tips for fire safety are also encompassed in this timely video released by the NFPA:

The Jones & Bartlett Learning Public Safety team wishes everyone a happy, healthy, and fire-safe holiday season!
