ROCKWALL, TX (September 20, 2022) At last night’s Rockwall City Council meeting, Captain Rodney Caudle, Driver Engineer Jacob Farrell, Firefighter Garrett Green and Rockwall Police Officer Kris Adair received a lifesaving award. We are extremely proud of their efforts and the direct role they played in saving the life of this young child.

On June 24, 2022 at 6:15 p.m., the Rockwall Fire Department responded to an unconscious person reported at 810 Nash Street. Along the way, Dispatch informed the crew that the patient was two years old, had been discovered in the pool, and that the family was performing CPR. A unit from the Rockwall Police Department, as well as a unit from Rockwall County EMS, also responded. Upon arrival, the crew quickly assessed the patient and continued resuscitation efforts that had been initiated by a police officer who was already at the scene. The patient was blue in color and not breathing. The patient’s airway was cleared and rescue breathing was performed until a Rockwall County EMS unit arrived. The patient was then taken to the ambulance where he was found to have started breathing on his own. He was then taken to hospital and released the following day.

Resuscitation efforts by all involved, including the Engine 1 “A” shift crew, were critical to the patient’s survival and played a direct role in saving his life.
