Placerville woman wins the most important prize at Red Hawk Casino – her life

Placerville, Calif. (May 23, 2012) – Danielle Kremer came to Red Hawk Casino for an evening of gambling and fun with friends. She didn’t realize that her choice may have saved her life. After only a short time, Ms. Kremer, just 32 years old, suddenly fell to the floor unconscious, suffering from a heart attack.

Through the efficient and well-coordinated training of Red Hawk Casino team members and first responders, CPR was immediately administered and an automated external defibrillator (AED) was quickly used.

Kremer has waived her HIPAA rights to speak publicity about this event to bring awareness to the importance of being CPR trained and having an AED available in public buildings. Red Hawk Casino’s first responder staff used the AED device four times in addition to CPR. Without these advanced CPR techniques and the use of the AED, Kremer may not have survived.

The El Dorado County Emergency Services Authority recognized Brad Douglas and Josh Kentner, Red Hawk Casino first responders, as well as Noelle Miller, a former Red Hawk Casino first responder now employed at the Shingle Springs Tribal Health Clinic. Danielle Kremer was present to personally thank those that played a part in saving her life.

Red Hawk Casino employs a security team of 65 that includes eight first responders.  The first responders are certified as emergency medical technicians through the state and update their certifications regularly.

Having a well-trained team along with accessible AEDs has saved many lives each year.  According to studies reported in the New England Journal of Medicine, having AED devices close at hand increases the lifesaving capabilities of non-medical first responders. The study went on to prove that the shortest time to defibrillation can produce the highest survival rates.
