JUNE 2019 – Deputies Tertin, Whitcomb, Degner, Gilbert, and Lyga were presented with a patient in full cardiac arrest. While we cannot tell you exactly what happened next due to federal patient privacy and confidentiality laws, we can tell you that this team did not freeze. They reacted to the situation in a professional manner.
