Escambia EMS Crew Recognized For Delivering Atmore Couple’s Baby

December 27, 2018

An Escambia County EMS crew was recognized with the County Star Award for their assistance with several baby deliveries over the summer, including one on July 31 involving a couple driving from Atmore to Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola.

The patient’s water broke in the car before they could make it to the hospital, forcing them to call 911 for help. Paramedic Kristin Bruce and EMT Kaitlyn Brown were able to get to the couple just as the patient was giving birth in the front seat of the car, facilitating a safe, healthy delivery.

The patient was very thankful and reported that the crew was very kind to her, giving her much-needed emotional support.

Assistant County Administrator Matthew Coughlin presented each crew member with a Star Award for their dedication and service.
