Kudos for Engine 36, B Shift

"To the crew of Engine 36:

"I was on duty at SAH ED when {the patient} was brought in after a witnessed V. fib arrest (Tues AM). I just wanted to let you know that he is now off of the ventilator and has no neurologic deficit. The family went to great pains to express their thanks to 'the fireman and the paramedics' who worked the case. They have sent muliple emails to family and friends, many of which are community leaders, stating the same. I also wanted to compliment you on the wonderful effort and great save. Thanks for the continued great care supplied to our community."
