Woman Alive Thanks to Hamilton Firefighter’s Actions

A woman is alive this afternoon thanks to the quick work of Hamilton firefighters and Beauport Ambulance Paramedics on Thursday.

Hamilton Fire Chief Phil Stevens said a call for a medical aid came in just before noon from a Hamilton resident.

Hamilton Fire Department

Hamilton Fire Department Firefighter/EMT Ryan Goodwin was the first person on the scene and he found the woman unresponsive.

A second call went out for all department members to respond and Goodwin “took all the appropriate measures,” Stevens said.

Goodwin began to administer CPR “and the woman is alive because of his efforts as well as the other firefighters on scene and Beauport Ambulance Paramedics,” Stevens said. Hamilton police were also on scene to assist and dispatcher Cathy Hovey did a great job, Stevens said.

Goodwin is currently enrolled in the Paramedic Program, “which definitely helped,” Stevens said, along with Firefighter/EMT Zac Ingraham, who is in the same program.  Both firefighters assisted the ambulance paramedics.

Also assisting at the call were Hamilton Fire Department Deputy Chief Kenneth Brand, Firefighter/EMT Robert Wallace, Firefighter/EMT Alexander Dale, Firefighter Frank Cirinna, Firefighter/EMT Sarah Spurr and Stevens.
