Phoenix Awards

Collier County Emergency Medical Services Department’s Phoenix Award recognizes emergency personnel who successfully resuscitated a cardiac arrest victim from clinical death.

These individuals were not breathing and had no heartbeat, and were literally brought back to life by first responders. The award is named after the Phoenix, a mythological bird that rose from the ashes after its death.

Marco Island Fire Foundation is proud of its brave and dedicated first responders who have been recognized with the Phoenix Award:
