Save #1989, Paramedic Danielle Kamenar – Community Life Team EMS Harrisburg PA
On April 9, 2017, Paramedic Danielle (Dani) Kamenar and her partner were transporting a patient who was suffering shortness of breath when the patient suddenly became combative and struck Kamenar in the abdomen.
Paramedic Kamenar was 32 weeks pregnant at the time and was immediately admitted into the hospital. The assault caused a partial placental abruption and she spent more than a month on continuous bed rest.
Despite the medical attention Kamenar received, she went into early labor and safely delivered baby girl Brooklyn Kamenar prematurely. Every doctor, specialist and nurse that treated Kamenar determined that without her Safariland® MT2-1 armor, there would’ve been a greater chance of a full abruption and Brooklyn most likely would’ve been lost.
We welcome baby Brooklyn Kamenar, SAVE #1988, and Paramedic Dani Kamenar, SAVE #1989, to The Safariland Group SAVES CLUB®.
