On Oct 10, 2021, Sergeant Brian Bammert and Officers Beau Hartneck and Will Forberg were dispatched to a local dialysis center on a report that a patient lost consciousness and was not breathing.
After arriving, the officers immediately began performing CPR and inserted an airway. Once paramedics arrived, the patient had regained a pulse and by the time the patient arrived at the hospital, he was awake and alert. After a few days, staff at the dialysis center informed the officers the patient has returned to receiving care at the facility.
For their prompt response and effective execution of life saving measures, Bammert, Hartneck, and Forberg were awarded the Golden Valley Police Department's Life Saving Award at the Dec 7 City Council meeting.
