The Mesa Fire Department will recognize 9-year-old Tristin Saghin as the first honorary junior paramedic for the department. Tristin performed CPR on his 2-year-old sister, Brooke Saghin, when she fell in her grandmother’s swimming pool last weekend. The recognition will be at Mesa Fire Station 209, the responding crew’s station. Responding firefighters will recognize Tristin for the actions he took prior to their arrival.

“It’s those initial actions that saved his sister. Brooke was breathing and crying by the time she was transported to a local hospital,” the department states in a press release.

“As trained professionals we know the impact an emergency incident can have on your emotions and for Tristin to have remained calm enough to perform CPR is amazing,” Mesa Fire Department spokesman Forrest Smith said. “We hope to recognize Tristin and bring attention to water safety, so that it’s in the forefront of the public’s mind.”
