Officers Awarded for assisting with the delivery of a baby

A few weeks ago Officers Phillips and Goodling responded to a medical call involving a pregnancy. When they arrived they found the mother in distress and the baby was not waiting for the ambulance or the hospital. Within minutes Officer Phillips was able to calmly assist with the delivery, keep the parents calm, assist the baby with breathing and pass on medical information. Officer Goodling assisted in the process and jumped in the ambulance as the driver so the medics could attend to the mom and the newborn baby girl, Zoey.

Both officers received a Chief's Commendation award and a uniform ribbon to identify their service to the family.

Officer Phillips is on the left, Officer Goodling on the right. Mom and baby Zoey are happy, healthy and strong.
