Lifesaving Awards, Unit Citation presented
Palm Coast resident Serge Judro attended the Palm Coast City Council meeting on Tuesday, April 3, to thank his coworkers and the Engine 21 crew who responded when he collapsed Feb. 15.
Judro didn't feel well on Feb. 15 when he went to work, but he didn’t realize he was experiencing signs of a heart attack. His coworkers didn’t notice that anything was wrong until Judro collapsed. They called 911 and immediately began CPR. Upon arrival of Palm Coast Fire Engine 21, the crew of Lt. Daniel Driscoll, Driver Engineer Adam Bachman and Firefighter-Paramedic Kalin Graham found Judro in cardiac arrest.
Because of the extraordinary chain of events on Feb. 15, Judro is here today as one of the 10 percent of people who survive an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.
Palm Coast Fire Chief Mike Beadle presented lifesaving awards to Sandvik employees Nate Kife, Gene Kleinschmit, Tricia Pacionis and Lori Scorpio, saying not all first responders are firefighters. Driscoll, Bachman and Graham of Palm Coast Engine 21 received a Unit Citation.

The cause is near to ISTC students, as the Branstrator family stayed at the Ronald McDonald House for 45 days while Jackson was receiving radiation therapy. Jackson was diagnosed with brain cancer in July 2016 and finished treatment in September 2017.
