Local Tragedy Transformed Collierville Fire Department in 1986

pararmedic optAnyone who has ever lived through a tragedy knows that the only way to even attempt to make things right is to take steps to prevent it from happening again.

Collierville resident Charles Gatlin did this in March of 1986. On February 1, 1986, Gatlin's son Bryan died following a car accident. He was riding in the bed of an El Camino near Sycamore Road and Shelby Drive, and was thrown through the cab window when the driver had to slam on the brakes. An ambulance came, but at that time the ambulances serving Shelby County were staffed by a single Emergency Medical Technician (EMT). EMTs weren't trained or certified to administer IV fluids in 1986. That fact and the 20 minute drive to St. Francis Hospital in Memphis severely reduced Gatlin's chances of survival. The 55 minute wait for intravenous fluids cost 16-year-old Bryan Gatlin his life.
