Mark Pacella

Medic celebrated another great patient reunion on August,  18th.  

Mr. Pacella went into cardiac arrest while playing tennis at Freedom Park on July 16th. A bystander called 911, Emergency Medical Dispatcher Michael Sheriff coached the caller to instruct additional bystanders on how to perform CPR.  Charlotte Fire Department and Medic arrived shortly to the scene. Mr. Pacella is a survivor today due to effective bystander CPR, early Advanced Life Support Intervention, and excellent patient care

Please join Medic and Mr. Pacella in congratulating Paramedic Corey Colvin, EMT Nick Bringolf and EMD Michael Sherriff on an outstanding job!

We would also like to extend a special thank you to the Charlotte Fire Department and the hospital staff of Carolinas Medical Center Main for their assistance and successful teamwork in helping to treat Mr. Pacella.  Mr. Pacella’s positive outcome is just another example of Medic's effective community partnerships at work.
