If you ask a Firefighter what the hardest part of their job is, most of them will tell you that the hardest thing is dealing with sick and injured children. Fortunately, Nassau County Fire Rescue is blessed with amazing staff who are both firefighters and trained paramedics.
A Nassau County citizen learned first hand on Friday, January 17, 2014 just how great Nassau County first responders are whenever she found her two-year old son Clyde holding an empty bottle of his sister's medicine. Within 20 minutes of dialing 911, Station 70 rescue personnel were on the scene providing first aid. Clyde was rushed to Wolfson Children's Hospital where he was treated. His mother Mandy stated that he was barely breathing when rescue arrived and that within a few hours of treatment, he was able to breathe again on his own.
Mandy came forward with this story to show her appreciation to Nassau County Fire Rescue and to make other citizens aware of just how important their jobs are. Thanks to the wonderful responders from Station 70, her son is alive and doing well. Read more about this touching story on Channel 4's website news4jax.com.
