On the evening of January 18, 2016, the Sunapee Fire Department was notified of an unconscious male at the Sunapee High School.
The patient, a longtime school teacher at the Sunapee High School, as well as the ski team coach was about to give one of his students a ride home. This young student witnessed his coach go into full cardiac arrest and had the where-with-all to activate the 911 system, which also helped save the patient’s life.
On scene were Firefighter/EMT Darryl Sencabaugh and Fire Captain/ EMT-I Steven Marshall, who started CPR on the patient. Through their efforts, along with other members of the EMT squad, and continuing chain of care providers, the outcome of the patient was a positive one and he is on the road to recovery.
Fire Captain/EMT-I Marshall is the Police Chief for the Town of Washington and retired at the end of March after 33 years of service in NH.
