UNION CITY, Ga. -- The Union City Fire Department will recognize four firefighters at the Union Council meeting on Tuesday.
Sgt. Jeff Forsyth, Fire Apparatus Operator Kristina Rossey, Paramedic Michael Fitzpatrick and Paramedic David Ligon will receive the Life Saving Award for performing a purposeful, distinctive and successful lifesaving act on a human being, according to Public Information Officer Dennis Moore.
He said that on July 17, the four firefighters, of Union City Fire Rescue Department Rescue 10 and Engine 2 were dispatched to a location where an adult male was unresponsive and not breathing. Upon arrival, they determined the man was in full cardiac arrest.
Crew members followed up on the man's condition a few days later, to find he had recovered and left the hospital.
