Christopher Hann and Jake Lawlor
Fairview Fire District
On June 21, 2019, the Fairview Fire District was dispatched to a report of a woman that had given birth prematurely. Firefighter/EMT Christopher Hann and Lieutenant/EMT Jake Lawlor responded and arrived to find a newborn infant in the tub that was pale and not crying. Additional crew from the station arrived at the scene and advanced life support was on the way.
Immediate efforts began to resuscitate the newborn infant. At the same time, the infant was carried out to the mobile life support ambulance as it is arriving on the scene. Crew members placed the infant in this unit and immediately began transport to a local hospital with Fairview personnel on board.
The crew at the scene continued to assist the mother and transported her to a local hospital. After a long hospitalization, the baby was discharged.
For their life-saving efforts, FASNY is proud to recognize Hann and Lawlor with this prestigious award.
