Jasper firefighters recognized for life-saving work


Jasper firefighters were recognized during Tuesday’s Jasper City Council meeting for their work in saving the life of a Jasper man two weeks ago.

Fred Nichols, a member of the Kiwanis Club of Jasper, suffered a heart attack at Maddox Intermediate School during a BUG (Bringing Up Grades) program for fourth graders at the school on March 6. 

Nichols, 85, was not breathing and had no heartbeat when Jasper firefighters arrived on the scene less than four minutes after the incident happened. 

Kiwanis Club members Billy Doss and Todd Thompson, along with Maddox teacher Leigh Evans, had started CPR on Nichols until firefighters could get on the scene. Once there, firefighters immediately began working to save Nichols’ life with CPR and use of an Automated External Defibrillator. 

Nichols was taken by ambulance to Walker Baptist Medical Center and later airlifted to Brookwood Medical Center in Birmingham, where he was placed in the hospital’s Cardiac Intensive Care Unit. Within a few days, Nichols was moved into a regular hospital room, and today he’s continuing his recovery.
