Fresno area residents are fortunate to have a superior emergency response system. I called 911 recently and an American Ambulance and a Fresno Fire Department team arrived in less than four minutes.
Upon arrival, they were challenged by the patient going into cardiac arrest. Using a defibrillator, the patient was revived and rushed to immediate cardiac surgery. Happily, our family member was discharged three days later.
You must remember to call promptly so these teams can repeat miracles such as this.
