Texas Health recently recognized several members of The Colony Fire Department for what was described as a "perfect" baby delivery.
In mid February, crews from TCFD Engine 11 & Medic 13 delivered a patient's baby girl in the ambulance on the Dallas North Tollway while en route to the hospital. Hospital staff who received the patients upon arrival commended TCFD for the quality of neonatal care provided both to the baby and her mother.
The crew of Engine 11 is Capt. Tyler Hawkins, Appartus/Operator Jon Coker, and Firefighters Travis Thurston and John Crowe. The crew of Medic 13 is Paramedics Kristen Day and Andy Williams.
