As a Cub Scout, Chase Devaney learned not to panic in an emergency.

That training came in handy Dec. 26, when his dad, Shannon Devaney, was having a massive heart attack in Stayton. Chase, 10, simply called his mom, Teresa Devaney, and she called 911.

“It was kind of scary at first,” Chase recalled. “After we went to the hospital to see him, I knew he’d be all right. But I was still scared.”
