Frisco Fire Department Paramedics Administer Blood Products

(December 17, 2018) Less than one week after the implementation of a Pre-Hospital Blood Transfusion Program, Frisco Firefighters administered blood products to a patient in the field following an accident at a construction site.

Frisco Dispatch was alerted of an injured person near the intersection of Frisco Green Ave and John Hickman Pkwy at 8:06 a.m. The first units arrived on scene at 8:11 a.m.

Upon arrival, firefighters were directed to a patient that had suffered traumatic injuries in a building under construction. The incident involved a crane and building materials that were being used to erect a portion of a stairwell inside the building. Frisco Firefighters rendered treatment to the patient while members of Frisco’s Rescue company stabilized and removed debris so that the patient could be removed. The patient exhibited signs and symptoms consistent with severe blood loss, and the blood transfusion protocol was initiated prior to transport.

Frisco Fire Department transported the patient to a local hospital with life threatening injuries. The patient was admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) and is currently listed in “serious but stable” condition.

The cause of the accident remains under investigation.
