A reservist kept her cool and provided lifesaving support to a coworker while at her civilian job

Cassi Banks, a reservist with the 307th Maintenance Squadron at Barksdale Air Force Base, La., works side-by-side with Pharmacist Elva Romero at Fred’s Pharmacy in Haughton, La. Cassi called on her Self-Aid and Buddy Care training when she helped Elva who was in physical distress on April 4, 2015. After assisting Elva with an Epinephrine injection, Cassi called Emergency Medical Services. She then stayed and calmed Elva until help arrived. (U.S. Air Force Photo by Master Sgt.
