Medic II, the program that has taught cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) to more than 700,000 members of the general public; and Ed and Karen Levy, long-time supporters of the Seattle Fire Department and Medic One, will be named to the Lifesavers Hall of Fame May 22.
The awards will be presented during a Seattle luncheon benefiting the Medic One Foundation's Emergency Equipment Fund. The luncheon speakers will be Husky football coach Rick Neuheisel and comedienne Tracey Conway. Conway was resuscitated from sudden cardiac death in 1995. She had collapsed on a Seattle television stage after taping a spoof of the medical drama "ER".
