National award for our fab four

Congratulations go to the amazing Phil Smith, Laura Wallace, Julia Horswell and Emily Wallis who received a national award first.

The fab four attended the inaugural Who Cares Wins awards run by the Sun newspaper yesterday (11th October), and scooped the Ultimate Lifesaver Award for their actions at a serious road traffic collision last year.

They received the award for their actions in pulling the patient Storm out of the wreckage of his car on the M1 moments near Hemel Hempstead before it exploded.

West Herts DLO Phil said: “When we receive a 999 call, we just go into response and treat mode, and perhaps never really fully appreciate the positive consequences of our actions until many days or even weeks afterwards. For us it's just what we do, but we're very proud to represent our colleagues and our emergency services.”

You can read more about the incident they attended and the patient meet-up held earlier this year here.
