First on the scene were Nassau County Sheriff’s Office Deputies Lezandro Deleon, David Douglas, and Mark Hunter. The deputies used an Automated External Defibrillator on Mr Sallette while fire/rescue was enroute. Once on scene, rescue personnel took over, continued CPR and transported Mr Sallette to UF Hospital North in Jacksonville. There, Mr. Sallette made a full recovery.
In an effort to recognize those involved in saving Mr. Sallette, Jacksonville Fire/Rescue Department wanted to honor the first responders that actually participated in saving Mr. Sallette.
On October 3rd, 2017, at a joint ceremony, Jacksonville Fire Rescue recognized NCSO deputies and Nassau County firefighters at the sheriff’s office for their efforts, presenting each with a lifesaving certificate from Chief Powers with Jacksonville Fire/Rescue Department.
