Paramedic Thomas Harvey, Jr. is known for remaining calm and professional even during the most difficult emergency responses. This trait was especially evident when Thomas and his partner were transporting a woman in pre-term labor to the hospital. When the situation escalated, Thomas was able to help deliver the baby in the ambulance. He noticed the newborn had potentially life-threatening issues and administered CPR. Thomas demonstrated exceptional professionalism and care for his young mother and her child. The family attended the 2017 Heroes Breakfast as Thomas received his award from the American Red Cross and was reunited with the child he saved.
