Hartford, WI – On November 11, Hartford Rescue and Hartford Police responded to an emergency call for a 27-week pregnant female in imminent delivery. Crews arrived on scene within 3 minutes of the call and found a female giving birth with evidence of a complicated delivery.


After EMS personnel assisted with the delivery, they discovered the newborn was not breathing and did not have a pulse, so CPR was performed.

The mother and the newborn were rapidly transported to Aurora Medical while providing supportive care to the mother and resuscitative efforts to the newborn in separate ambulances. The newborn was successfully resuscitated in the ER after CPR was performed for almost an hour.

The newborn (Caroline) was transferred to Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin and has been receiving care in the NICU for the past month.

Caroline has been getting stronger every day since and her parents came to visit the crew members that responded to the call on November 11, 2023, to thank them for their efforts and care.

The actions of the responders that day are a reflection of the dedication that Hartford Fire & Rescue prides themselves on to deliver high-quality care to the members of the community every day.
