JUNE 2019 – Officer Kelley, Officer Gray, and Deputy Oaks were presented with a patient who was in full cardiac arrest. While we cannot tell you exactly what happened next due to federal patient privacy and confidentiality laws, we can tell you that this team did not freeze. They reacted to the situation in a professional manner.


The individuals worked together to resuscitate the patient. Officer Kelley, Officer Gray, and Deputy Oaks, along with the assistance of Telecommunicator Bradford, saved the patient’s life.
