Judy Lallier and Ty Evans, who are staff at Maplewood Middle School on Holloway Avenue East, and a group of Maplewood Police and Fire staff were recognized by Maplewood City Council with a Lifesaving Award Jan. 14. On Nov. 6 Maplewood Public Safety personnel were dispatched to the Maplewood Middle School for the report of a 12 year old female student who was in cardiac arrest. Lallier and Evans immediately activated the EMS system, began CPR and retrieved a school AED. Maplewood police arrived to find Lallier performing CPR on the 12 year old. Lallier and Police Sergeant Kevin Johnson continued CPR until additional police and EMS units arrived. Maplewood Police and Fire worked together to deliver chest compressions and assist the girlís breathing. After administering cardiac medications and performing defibrillation, Maplewood Public Safety personnel located a pulse. After re-establishing a pulse, Maplewood EMS further assessed and provided medications to stabilize the girl’s condition. EMS personnel ultimately transported her to an area hospital.
