MARYSVILLE – A Marysville man was recently reunited with the nine first-responders who saved his life the day before his 48th anniversary.

David Strube’s wife, Carol, called 9-1-1 Aug. 17 after he had a seizure. When firefighters arrived, he had stopped breathing. Firefighters began CPR and other advanced life-saving measures and were able to restore his pulse. They transported him to a hospital, where he and Carol celebrated their 48th wedding anniversary the following day. He is now back home continuing his recovery.

The first-responders met with Strube and received Phoenix Awards from Fire Chief Martin McFalls at the Marysville Fire District Board of Directors meeting.

Honored were: Battalion Chief Rick Jesus; Capt. Steve Neyens; firefighter/paramedics Kevin Schroeder and Hunter Day; firefighters Josh Olsen, Katie Hereth, Scott Minaker and Austin Young; and Snohomish County 9-1-1 dispatcher Chad Piazza.

Firefighter Chad Solbakken was also recognized for his promotion to driver/operator.

Also, firefighter Ryan Hardwick recently completed the University of Washington – Medic One Paramedic Training Program. Hardwick completed 2,500 hours of training over 10 months.
