“If the VPD member(s) had not deployed his (tourniquet) in an attempt to attenuate the bleeding, the patient would not have survived,” said Dr. Erik Vu of Vancouver Coastal Health.

    Kudos to the Vancouver police! Thanks for sharing this article with us, Samina.

    • Thanks Elaine my friend. Police officers save lives on a daily basis but very rarely they are praised by media and same goes for Vancouver police department. I loved this news highlighting the life saving deed of a police officer. Take care and God bless.

    • I agree and I join you in congratulating the police officer who saved a human life all owing to his quick thinking and training. Thanks Willow, I appreciate your comment my friend. Take care and God bless.

  3. Thanks for sharing this, Samina! Officers are known to protect, but they also save lives every day.

    • Thanks Jill my friend. I agree with you Jill our heroes not only protect us but save our lives on a daily basis. VPD (Vancouver police department) very rarely gets the much needed recognition for its services. This is what made this news very special for me and all Vancouverites. God bless our heroes who do so much for us. Take care and God bless.

    First aid training is a must for police officers, I even keep an advanced kit in my truck… that has a tourniquet..:-)

    • I agree with you Ed. all police officers are all trained to save lives and carrying an advanced kit with yourself is a very sensible thing to do. What makes this news special is that it is rare that a VPD ( Vancouver police department) police officer is praised by media for saving a life. That’s why we all loved this news. Thanks for the valuable input my friend. You take care and be safe and happy in your journey of life.
