>Pennsylvania Auxiliarist Receives Red Cross Award for CPR


On 18 January, the Honorable James Deleon, Coast Guard Auxiliarist from CG Auxiliary District 5 Northern Region, received an American Red Cross “Certificate of Appreciation for Extraordinary Personal Action”. 

Auxiliarist Deleon and Mr. Joe Waters (not shown) assisted judicial candidate Beverly Muldrow when she collapsed while speaking at a public engagement in Philadelphia.  Auxiliarist Deleon and Mr. Waters were able to keep Muldrow alive by providing Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) until Paramedics arrived on scene.  Their efforts were credited for saving her life thanks to their training and actions.
