Day Four International #ControlRoomWeek - #ThrowbackThursday
Main article content
It’s Throwback Thursday and seen as though it is International #ControlRoomWeek, we wanted to take you back to 2019 when we posted about our Call Handler Kathryn Longstaff who saved the life of Stephen McClaren.
Stephen had been suffering from a medical episode and managed to dial 999. He was not able to speak and instead tapped to communicate with Kathryn. Thanks to her quick thinking, she was able to save his life through this method of communication.
At the time, this news release hit headlines across the nation and the below video shows the day Kathryn and Stephen met 😊.
Stephen sadly died last year, and Kathryn attended his funeral. Stephen’s family thanked Kathryn at the service again for previously saving Stephen’s life as it gave them extra time with him. Our thoughts remain with Stephen’s family.
