TMSG: First Responders

Posted: Updated:

(WLNS) - A packaging company in Lansing is getting some welcome attention today.

Not because of their high-tech equipment, or the products they make. It's because of the heroes behind the scenes.

The morning of October 29th started like any other here at Multi-Packaging Solutions.

Robert Misner had just arrived at work.

But before his shift even started he started to feel dizzy.

"They told me I had a heart attack and one of my arteries was 95 percent blocked."

It's a miracle, he's even sitting here today.

So why is he?

His co-workers.

Michael Roman, assistant chief of the Delta Township fire department says if something isn't done in the first four minutes, "then there's usually a bad outcome. Here at the plant, they started right away, seconds from when the patient went down. That was vital."

In a plant with more than 500 employees There's a group of 73, who volunteer their time and energy to save lives.

They're the company's first responders should something go wrong.

Sometimes it's nothing; a small cut on the finger. But their job wasn't over.

Because less than 3 months later it happened again.

This time, to Bruce Bond.

"The team brought me back. There I was."

Reporter: alive and talking.

Diane Hammond, a member of the first responder team, remembers.

"I'll never forget when he came too. He lifted his knee a little bit and looked up at the guys who were working on him and he said "back off!" because they were in his personal space. That was an awesome sign. For us to have saved 2 lives, that's phenomenal."

And that phenomenal effort isn't going unnoticed.

They were recently recognized by the Delta Township Fire Department, with two life saving awards.
