Savage Police Officers honored
Three Savage Police Officers were recently honored with the Scott County Morris Miller Health Hero Award for their excellent team work in providing the necessary medical care to save a man’s life. On August 25, 2019, at 2:11 a.m., the Scott County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to a medical call in Credit River Township. The call was for a male that was having difficulty breathing. Savage Police Officers Rob Calvin, Todd Weinzierl, and Jacqueline Kelch responded to assist. The three officers worked quickly and in tandem to form an action circle of resuscitation that involved performing numerous cycles of CPR and implementing multiple shocks from the AED before the ambulance arrived. "It is with great pleasure and pride to support the Morris A Miller Nominations of Officers Calvin, Kelch, and Weinzierl,” praised Dr. Andrew Stevens, Medical Director and Chief of Allina EMS. “The work of these law enforcement officers made a very real difference in saving a life in Scott County. I am proud to support and serve with these individuals. Additionally, as a resident of Credit River Township, this type of action is what makes me, my family, and neighbors reassured that on our worse days the first responders in our county are top notch.” Officers Calvin, Kelch, and Weinzierl, the City of Savage is immensely proud of you!
