Mitchell Firefighters Receive Life Saving Certificates and Pins

(MITCHELL) – Four Mitchell City Volunteer firefighters and emergency medical responders received life-saving certificates and pins.

Dalton Chowning, Parish England, Vinnie Bodkins, and Tristen Sites were presented with life-saving certificates and pins in conjunction with saving a woman’s life.

On January 16, 2020, at 3:30 a.m. Mitchell Fire Department was dispatched to a fainting/unconscious female. Upon arrival, Tristen Sites found the patient lying on the floor not breathing and with no pulse. As others arrived they jumped in and did rotations of CPR.

“Without hesitation, he started CPR. These young men have done a fine job at not only saving a life but also as working as a team,” said Tyler Duncan Mitchell Fire Chief. “We are very proud of these gentlemen and are so proud to call them brothers and family.”

In 2019, the Mitchell Fire Volunteer Fire Department responded to more than 769 emergency medical calls.
