The Warminster Police would like to inform the public of two critical life saving events within a 24 hour period, between May 30, 2016 and May 31, 2016, in which the Warminster Police Department responded and were directly responsible for the saving of two different lives.
On May 30, 2016 at approximately 10:16 Warminster Police were dispatched to 300 block of Grape Street Warminster Twp for a medical emergency. Upon arrival officers observed a victim unconscious with shallow breathing and a weak pulse. Indications led the officers to believe the victim was suffering from a narcotic overdose. Trained Officers administered doses of Naloxone, which rendered the victim conscious just as Warminster Ambulance arrived. This is the Warminster Police Department’s first Naloxone save since being trained by Warminster Ambulance and receiving free doses of Naloxone from a program run by the Bucks County District Attorney’s office.
On May 31, 2016 at approximately 07:44 hours Warminster Police were dispatched to the 300 block of East County Line Road, Warminster Twp for a report of a person in cardiac arrest. Upon arrival officers found the victim on their back, unresponsive, and with no pulse. Officers quickly began CPR and administered an AED. The AED administered a shock to the victim which helped the victim begin to have a more stable condition upon Warminster Ambulance’s arrival. Warminster Ambulance then took over care of the victim and transported him to the hospital. This is the Warminster Police Department’s first AED save this year. The AED were purchased with a grant through the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development with help from Senator Stewart Greenleaf’s office.
