Congratulations Fire Dispatcher Ryan Russell

On Tuesday, September 9, 2014, Public Safety Radio Fire Dispatcher Ryan Russell was recognized, along with VTA Bus Operator Janelle Rubbo, by the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors for their outstanding work in providing CPR to a woman who was found unconscious at the San Jose Diridon Station.  

Ryan was able to guide Janelle through several minutes of chest compressions while crews from Station 30 responded. Ryan did a great job in keeping Janelle calm and encouraging her throughout the call.

These are among the most important calls that Fire Dispatchers handle, and through the work of Ryan and Janelle, this woman was given the best possible chance at survival.

Congratulations Ryan and thank you for your excellent work on this call.
