Woman to be honored by CAFMA for saving child’s life stories

A Prescott Valley woman will be receiving a lifesaving award from the Central Arizona Fire and Medical Authority (CAFMA) during the agency’s upcoming board of directors meeting.

The meeting will take place at the Chino Valley Town Hall, 202 N. Highway 89, in Chino Valley, at 5 p.m., Monday, April 23.

The woman, Barbara Jezior, is a long-time registered nurse. On Wednesday, March 21, she came to the rescue when the parents of an 18-month-old child were in desperate need. Their child was choking on a grape and they couldn’t manage to dislodge it themselves. Hearing the parents screaming for help in her neighborhood’s streets, Jezior quickly came outside where the parents and child were and managed to get the grape out.

“I think anyone with medical training would have done the same thing,” Jezior said a couple days after the incident.

CAFMA Fire Marshal Rick Chase will present the award to Jezior. As always, the public is welcome to attend the agency’s board meeting.
