M2008-080 <br /> <br />RECOGNITION OF WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP FIRE DEPARTMENT PERSONNEL & <br />MONTGOMERY COUNTY SHERIFF’S DEPUTY <br /> <br />On February 6, 2008, an emergency call was placed for a child at Primary Village South <br />School. Montgomery County Sheriff’s Deputy Wade Fields and Washington Township’s Fire <br />Lieutenant Sara Lee, Firefighter Dean Davis, Firefighter Tony Travis, EMT Linda Fannin and <br />EMT Randy Baldridge responded. Mrs. Riling and her daughter told their story. <br /> <br />Cyndi Riling indicated that she was standing next to someone who would not have been here <br />had it not been for the people who responded when they did. She expressed with emotion <br />how she wished there were words to express what they did. They responded accurately, <br />quickly, calmly, effectively, and professionally when they dealt with her daughter and herself. <br />Her husband was in Indianapolis and she did not know who had it worse. She knew her <br />daughter was in great hands and was alive, but he did not. The money that goes to these <br />emergency personnel is well spent and is well deserved. Their training and concentration <br />under all kinds of circumstances and the way they responded is remarkable. Her daughter <br />then spoke and thanked them. Mrs. Riling added that they saved her daughter’s life and for <br />that they are forever grateful and forever indebted. Mrs. Riling emphasized that the <br />emergency personnel are heroes and her family is truly blessed and they are very honored to <br />live in such a wonderful area. She told the Fiscal Officer that they deserved even more <br />money. <br /> <br />Mrs. Young asked the firefighters to come forward and tell what happened and also to have <br />their picture taken. They responded to a call late in the afternoon at Kindergarten Village. The <br />staff led them to an office where a child was having a severe asthma attack and was having <br />difficulty breathing. Fortunately, they were able to give her some breathing medication and <br />stop the attack. After they calmed everyone down, they transported Mrs. Riling’s daughter to <br />Children’s Medical Center of Dayton. <br /> <br />PROCLAMATIONS <br /> <br />It was moved by Mrs. Young, seconded by Mr. Blair, to approve the following proclamations: <br /> <br />Boy Scout James Gillahan <br /> <br />WHEREAS, <br /> James Gillahan of Centerville, Ohio, will be receiving his prestigious Eagle Scout <br />award from the Boy Scouts of America; and <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />03/17/08 <br /> 1 <br /> <br />
