Buffalo Police Officers Receive a Letter of Commendation From Buffalo Fire Department
Updated On: Jul 25, 2016

     Lieutenant Jason Czora of the Buffalo Fire Department wrote a letter of commendation to Buffalo Police Officers Dave Kimmins, Alan Ortiz, Clayton Reed, and Angelica Andriaccio for their life saving efforts. 

     On January 8, 2016, Engine 31 was dispatched a rescue call for a heroin overdose.  The victims were the two parents of 4 children home at the time of the 911 call.  PO Kimmins, PO Al Ortiz, PO Clayton Reed, and PO Angelica Andriaccio were the first to arrive on scene.  They were immediately confronted with 4 extremely distraught children. Officers assessed the situation and quickly determined the necessary course of action.  Buffalo Police officers performed CPR for 5 minutes before BFD arrived.   

     During this time, the BPD officers controlled and comforted the hysterical children, administered Narcan, and continued CPR.  BFD firefighters relieved officers Andriaccio and Reed from performing CPR on the female.  Officer Kimmins and Officer Ortiz continued to assist with the male victim by ventilating him with a Bag Valve mask.  Lt. Czora of the BFD did administer additional doses of Narcan to both victims.

     Without the efforts of the Buffalo Police officers during this extremely stressful situation, the male victim would not have survived.  The female victim was unable to be resuscetated, but certainly not due to lack of effort, speedy response, and overall good continuing cooperation  between the Buffalo Police Department and the Buffalo Fire Department.

      We are very proud of our BPD officers!
