Moilanen recognized by South Metro Fire Rescue Authority
Recently, Trek Moilanen of Acme Brick Co. received an award for a lifesaving effort.
On March 14, 2014, Moilanen, who has been the chief pilot for Acme Brick Co. for more than eight years, was at the airport performing a pre-flight check before company managers arrived for their planned departure back to company headquarters. An airport employee nearby suddenly suffered a heart attack, and received facial injuries as he fell to the ground. Moilanen and an airport employee rushed to the victim’s aid and used an Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) to revive him. When the fire rescue paramedics arrived at the scene, the victim was awake and alert.
The award presentation was Monday, July 28 at the South Metro Fire Rescue Authority headquarters in Centennial, Colorado.
