Our partners at Poudre Fire Authority recently recognized three FCPS officers with the Professional Partnership Award. Police and Fire/EMS personnel were dispatched to an incident involving a man who’d inflicted serious self injuries with a knife. Officers were first on scene and immediately began rendering aid, using QuikClot gauze to slow the man’s bleeding until medical crews arrived.

The man survived, and in the words of the PFA Captain who nominated officers for this award, “Without the quick actions of these police officers, the outcome for the patient would have been much different.”

Thanks to all who responded to this call and to the many other situations that require fast thinking and strong teamwork. Our partnership with fellow first responders is a critical part of making this the safest city in the country!
