JCC Emergency Communications Officers recognized for their life saving actions
Two James City County Emergency Communications Officers have been recognized for saving two lives.
Senior Emergency Communications Officer James Robinson
Robinson gave step-by-step CPR instructions to the caller for more than five minutes, counting out loud and encouraging the caller to continue compressions until the paramedics arrived. Because of the instructions provided by Robinson, the patient survived.
Master Emergency Communications Officer Amy Starcher
Robinson and Starcher are two shining examples of how James City County’s Public Safety Emergency Communications Center operates as an integral role in the “EMS Chain of Survival”. They have been added to the Center’s “Tree of Life” plaque that displays the names of the Public Safety Communication Officers and the dates when they “saved a life”.
