Way to Go, Trooper

On Tuesday, April 23, Nevada Highway Patrol Trooper Zachary Peterson was honored for deploying the AED (Automated External Defibrillator) that he carries in his patrol vehicle. The recognition award was presented by HGH EMS Rescue Director Pat Songer during the monthly meeting of the Humboldt County Hospital District Board of Trustees. Pat praised Trooper Peterson for acting fast upon his arrival on scene. Unfortunately, Pat told the assembled crowd that, in this instance, it was too late and the victim succumbed. However, he said Humboldt General Hospital still wanted to recognize Trooper Peterson and all area law enforcement officers for their role as first responders. All law enforcement officers in Humboldt County not only carry AED units in their vehicles, but are trained by local staff members in how to use them. Because they usually arrive on scene before an ambulance, they play a crucial role in saving the lives of local citizens. For his part, Trooper Peterson said, "I want to thank Pat Songer and staff for everything they do for us and for providing equipment we can use to save lives." Trooper Peterson was accompanied by Sgt. Greg Johnson and Lt. Tom Ames. Thank you to the Nevada Highway Patrol, the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office and the Winnemucca Police Department for being such outstanding partners in the Humboldt General Hospital Public Access Defibrillator Program.
