Tonight at the Indian River School District Board meeting we were honored to recognize a Cadet from Millsboro Middle School.
Lindsey Espinoza, a 14 year old Cadet, was babysitting her 4 year old sister. She noticed that her sister was choking. Her quick recognition of the situation and lifesaving actions saved her sister from choking. After performing the heimlich maneuver she noticed that a plastic toy was removed.
All of this was learned during the Cadet Program at Millsboro Middle School. Matt Gajdos from Delaware State Fire School assisted the Mentors from Roxana in teaching basic first aide and chocking to the Cadets in December. Little did we know that the knowledge and skills would be utilized in roughly a month.
GREAT JOB LINDSEY!!! We're proud to have you in the Cadet Program.
Recognizing Lindsey for her actions were Sussex County Councilman Rob Arlett, Chief Chris Uibel & Gerald Brinson from Roxana Volunteer Fire Company, Matt Gajdos from DE State EMS Association, Ron O'Neal from Millsboro Volunteer Fire Company, Chief Terry Jester from DE State Fire Chiefs Association and Dr. Jerns, principal of Millsboro Middle School.
