THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
911 Call by Boy, 7, Saves Dads Life
Issue Date: June 27, 2014
On May 16 Marinette County Dispatch took a 911 call from a seven-year-old Village of Wausaukee boy telling them that he could not wake up his daddy. Wausaukee Rescue Squad was paged to the call, and on arrival found a male who was later identified as Brandon Dodsworth, unresponsive upstairs.
It was the seven year old, Dillon Dodsworth, who was very calmly talking to dispatchers when the first responder arrived. Dillons bravery and the knowledge to call 911 when something was wrong, truly saved his dads life that night.
As a result, the Wausaukee Rescue Squad presented Dillon with a Certificate of Heroism for saving his father. Additionally, Dillon will be riding with the Wausaukee Rescue Squad in the annual 4th of July Parade. Because of the knowledge that Dillon had, he knew what to do in a serious situation. The squad was proud to present him the award.
