Stars of Life
1999 saw major advancements in the EMS system in Cromwell, thanks in large part to the vision, dedication, and hard work of several key individuals. Under the direction of EMS Captain Chip Darius, we planned for and implemented an Emergency Medical Dispatch system, and purchased six AEDs (defibrillators). The Cromwell Fire Department saluted Fire Commissioner Donald Swanson, Fire Commissioner William Clare, Fire Chief David Colligan and Chief Dispatcher David Jahn.
