Sheriff Mike Unger was recognized by the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services with a CPR “Code Save” for his actions back on October 16th in Stanton. Sheriff Unger was at home when he monitored a rescue call of a male not breathing at a residence in Stanton. He arrived on scene within a minute and the male who was in distress had begun to breathe again. Within a few minutes the man again collapsed and had no pulse and was not breathing. Sheriff Unger immediately began chest compressions and was able to re-establish a pulse and breathing on the male before local EMS arrived. The victim was then transported to the hospital by Stanton Fire/Rescue and was later able to return home. Also back on November 19th, Sheriff Unger was dispatched from his home to an emergency call of a man not breathing at a residence North of Stanton due to Stanton Rescue being unable to respond. Sheriff Unger arrived and assisted in performing CPR on the non-breathing male until Norfolk Rescue arrived and transported him to the hospital. This man also survived and returned home after several days in the hospital. This is the fourth “Code Save” award that Sheriff Unger has received as an EMT along with several other life saving awards to his credit during his long career of public service. Sheriff Unger currently serves as an EMT with Pilger Fire and Rescue.
