Life Saving Award Presented Tuesday in Latah County

Latah Country Sheriff Skiles and Lt. Jordan presented Sgt. Shane Anderson and Deputy Brady Anderson with a Life-Saving Award Tuesday, May 25.

Sgt. Anderson and Deputy Anderson responded to a patient having a medical emergency in April 2022.

Deputies administered two doses of Narcan, a medication that rapidly reduces the effects of an opioid overdose. CPR was started and an AED was applied.

Deputies remained calm, professional, and respectful in an otherwise chaotic situation. The patient was stabilized and transported to Gritman Medical Center where they received medical care.

“The dedication and commitment to excellence are a credit to Sgt. Anderson and Deputy Anderson’s professional law enforcement to the Latah County community. Congratulations!” Latah County Sheriff’s Office said in a Facebook post.
