COLORADO SPRINGS – A six-year veteran of the Colorado Springs Fire Department is being credited with saving eleven victims from death.
Austin Pugh is a paramedic at Station 4 in Southgate.
His skills in CPR save lives, but he says Springs Fire has some of the best paramedics and first responders anywhere.
“I think people’s chances of surviving a horrific event are much better in this city than they would be in other places,” Pugh said. “So for that, I’m proud.”
Pugh is a native of the Springs and graduated from Doherty High School.
He has also worked for AMR.
