Here's a few stories that warmed our heart. Just sharing and thanking you for choosing a career that helps people that need it most.

Man saved twice by CPR

Jeff Backus suffered from his first heart attack in 2014 when he was training to run for his first 5K. A woman who was nearby in the park provided CPR until healthcare providers came and he was taken to the hospital. Later he ended up having double bypass surgery. He suffered from a second heart attack in 2019 when he was running. There were some teens nearby who called 911 and provided him CPR. After that, he learned CPR himself and urges others to learn CPR too.
