Spokane Valley Deputy Receives Lifesaving Award
Spokane Valley Sheriff’s Deputy Randy Watts was honored yesterday and presented with a Lifesaving Award by the Spokane Valley Fire Department.
A Spokane Valley Firefighter nominated Deputy Watts for the award due to his actions on July 18th, 2014. Deputy Watts heard a medical call where it was reported a newborn baby was not breathing. Deputy Watts responded to the emergency call and found the baby was not breathing, had no detectable pulse and was purple in color. He immediately started rescue breathing, chest compressions and cleared the baby’s airway. When Spokane Valley Fire personnel arrived, Deputy Watts continued CPR and worked with Fire Personnel as the baby was transported to a local hospital.
Spokane Valley Fire Chief Bryan Collins presented the award to Deputy Watts in recognition of his lifesaving assistance which is credited for saving the baby’s life.
The Spokane County Sheriff’s Office and Spokane Valley Police Department are extremely proud of Deputy Watts, for not only his lifesaving efforts, but also for the outstanding and professional service he consistently provides the citizens of Spokane Valley and Spokane County.
Thank you Spokane Valley Fire Department for taking the time to recognizing Deputy Watts’ outstanding effort and for the profession service you provide all of us each and every day.
