Seven-Year-Old Saves Father's Life



(GOODYEAR, AZ) Ð Little seven-year-old Abby Emory knew exactly what to do when her father became unresponsive due to a medical emergency. With the knowledge she gained through the Goodyear Fire Department Urban Survival Program at local schools, she knew that help was as close as the phone by dialing 911. 


The Fire Department celebrated the successful outcome with Abby and her family at an award ceremony on April 11, 2006 at Goodyear Fire Station 181. Abby was presented with a Lifesaving Award by Goodyear Fire Department Community Education Specialist Dave Acero. Abby remembers him as ÒFire Pal DaveÓ from his appearance at her school. A representative from Wal-Mart attended the ceremony to present Abby with a bike and a helmet to reward her for her achievement.


The Fire Department Urban Survival Program has been a great success and has had a positive influence on the community.
