The Scott County Sheriff's Office is holding an award ceremony where we are awarding our life saving ribbon for two separate incidents which happened earlier this year. The ceremony will be held Wednesday November 4th, 2015 at 9 am in the Sheriff's Office Pavilion Conference Room. Members of the public are welcome to attend.
On April 11th, 2015 at approximately 11:00 am, Scott Emergency Communications received a phone call for assistance with a man down at 781 W. Walcott Road Lot 134 in Walcott.
Sgt. Jackson, Walcott Fire Department, and MEDIC Ambulance were dispatched to assist.
Sgt. Jackson upon his arrival found the person unresponsive and began doing CPR. He also deployed his AED and provided a shock to the patient. Upon the arrival of Walcott Fire Department they found Sgt. Jackson doing CPR and they took over patient care. The patient was shocked multiple times with the AED initially applied by Sgt. Jackson. If not for the initial actions taken by Sgt. Jackson, Walcott Fire Department believes the patient may have had a different outcome. Five days after this incident the patient was walking, talking, and on the road to recovery. The quick actions of Sgt. Jackson to apply lifesaving efforts reflect great credit upon himself, his community, and the Scott County Sheriff’s Office.
The quick actions of Sgt. Jackson to apply lifesaving efforts reflect great credit upon himself, his community, and the Scott County Sheriff’s Office.
The Scott County Sheriff’s Office Life Saving award is hereby awarded to Sgt. Robert Jackson for his life saving actions during this incident.
On June 16th, 2015 at approximately 2:00 pm, Scott Emergency Communications Center received a 911 call from 11196 95th Avenue in reference to a subject being trapped under a lawn tractor that rolled over.
Our deputies, Buffalo Fire Department, and MEDIC were dispatched to the scene. Also requested to assist was Buffalo Police Department.
Buffalo Police Department Chief Behning arrived on scene and he informed units the patient was turning blue from lack of oxygen. Chief Behning was able to use a large piece of lumber to lift the lawn tractor off of the patient enough in order for him to breathe. However, due to the weight of the tractor, Chief Behning was only able to lift the tractor a few inches. That was enough room to provide some relief to the patient.
Buffalo Fire Department Chief Adams and Fire Fighter Derrickson arrived on scene they assisted Chief Behning with lifting the tractor enough to where the patient could be pulled from underneath.
Buffalo Police Chief Behning’s quick thinking under pressure by using a nearby object to take the full weight of the tractor off the patient allowed time for Buffalo Fire Department Chief Adams and Fire Fighter Derrickson to arrive and assist in removing the patient from underneath the tractor. Without the quick actions of all those involved we fear there may have been a different outcome. The actions of all involved reflect great credit upon themselves, their community, and their agencies.
The Scott County Sheriff’s Office Life Saving award is hereby awarded to Buffalo Police Chief Behning, Buffalo Fire Chief Adams, and Buffalo Fire Fighter Derrickson for their life saving actions during this incident
