With arts and culture proving to be vital to the economic health of American cities, Mayor Chris Coleman joined local leaders and musicians on a tour of Saint Paul's historic Palace Theatre, situated in the center of Saint Paul's downtown and a site that is primed for reinvestment.
At a ceremony on Thursday, Oct. 31, Regions Hospital recognized the Saint Paul police officer and fire department medics who saved the life of a nine-year-old boy whose feet were severed by a train last August. Marshall Titus, the police officer who was the first to arrive on the scene, applied a tourniquet to stop bleeding in the child's legs. Saint Paul Fire medics continued care as they rushed the patient to Regions Hospital.
Just months before, Regions Emergency Medical Services provided training to Saint Paul fire and police departments on how to use the tourniquets. The tourniquets were included in trauma packs that Regions EMS provided for Saint Paul Police squad cars in 2013.
At the event, Aaron Burnett, MD, assistant medical director for Regions EMS, will present certificates recognizing their heroic acts to Officer Titus, Captain Randy Lundberg, paramedics Kelly Madigan and Wally Barry and emergency medical technician Larry Bartlett.
