RECIPIENT OF THE MAYOR’S OUTSTANDING
CITIZEN AWARD ASSISTED IN SAVING A LIFE
November 28, 2017 – At last night’s City Council meeting, Mayor Pro Tem Rob Usher and City Council Member Tracy Collins presented Woodstock resident, Nancy Wolfe, with the Mayor’s Outstanding Citizen Award for her efforts in saving the life of another individual on November 2, 2017.
On November 2, 2017, at 12:58p.m., Woodstock Police Officers and Firefighters responded to Semper Fi Bar and Grille, located at 9770 Main Street in Woodstock, in reference to a female actively choking.
According to the fire report as well as witnesses on scene, Nancy
Wolfe, who was also in the restaurant for lunch with friends, saw that the
female was choking on a hotdog and quickly reacted. Prior to Public Safety personnel arriving,
Nancy attempted the Heimlich maneuver on the choking female, and, at the
direction of 9-1-1 Dispatch, also performed CPR on the female.
The female patient was treated by
fire personnel on scene and then transported to a local hospital.
“I’ve known Nancy for years. Her willingness to help others has always been a pillar of her character, so I was unsurprised to see her jump in and lend first aid in this situation," said City Council Member Tracy Collins, who was at the restaurant with Nancy and
a witness to the incident.
"We are lucky to have her as a neighbor in Woodstock” Collins said.
The female has since fully recovered from the incident.
The Mayor’s Outstanding Citizen
Award is presented to the unsung heroes in our community whose actions are
extraordinary and make Woodstock a better place to live, work, and play.
