Daisy Mountain Fire Department crew members receive Aces of Hearts Award


NORTH VALLEY – On June 10, Daisy Mountain Fire Department crew members were honored at the AEMS Conference with the Aces of Hearts Award. These fire responders were nominated for the award by Honor Health Deer Valley Hospital for the exemplary care they displayed on a challenging EMS call from last year.

The nominated firefighters responded to a call last year regarding a local mom who was having chest pains. These crew members recognized how serious her condition was and helped save her life. They also cared for and fed her one-month-old baby.

DMFD firefighters Kemp Quackenbush and Garrett Attig and Captain Wade Barter, who were all on the call that day, were honored at the June 10 ceremony. Firefighter Eddie Coleman, Firefighter Dave Alexander, and Engineer Jason Mickelson were headed down to the event when they were dispatched on a call.

The Aces of Hearts Award is sponsored by Arizona Emergency Medical Systems, Inc. This award recognizes those who have provided outstanding contributions that enhance and improve emergency medical and trauma care.
