In November, ten members of Texas A&M University EMS, three members of the Emergency Care Team (ECT), one University police officer and one bystander were honored for their actions during the October Texas A&M - Texas Tech football game that resulted in saving the life of a 70 year-old man. The ECT responded to a report of an unconscious person and found the bystander and the University police officer performing CPR on the man, who was in full arrest.

A TAMU EMS ambulance responded, defibrillated the patient three times and transported the man to a local hospital. The man made a complete recovery and was present with his family at the award presentation.

Receiving honors were Whitney Deike, bystander; Kerri Shaffer, University Police; Will Chen, Heidi Kraut and Brandi Whitley of the Emergency Care Team; Billy Rice, Peter Schulte, Damon Hooe, Nathan Vermedahl, Will Hagood, Angel Cervantes, Jack Van Cleve, Jim Schaferling and Jeremy Hyde of TAMU EMS; and Amanda Allbriton, EMS dispatcher.

The Emergency Care Team is a student-run, volunteer organization that provides BLS first response at large events. TAMU EMS is a student-run, volunteer EMS organization that provides ALS treatment and transport for the Texas A&M community.
