Jermery Jenkins honored with Lifesaving Award
In 2012, while dining at an area restaurant, Jeremy Jenkins (NWM) saved a woman's life. When the woman began choking, Jenkins moved into action while others sat stunned. He performed abdominal thrusts, dislodging the obstruction in her throat. It was because of his knowledge and decision to act, that an area woman is alive and well today. Jenkins learned life-saving skills during an Argonne CPR class taught by Argonne Firefighter Paramedic Rachell Sierzega. Argonne's Fire Chief Patterson presented a Lifesaving Award to Jenkins on behalf of Argonne National Laboratory at a ceremony on April 25, 2012.
