Off-Duty; On-Duty

A resident who suffered cardiac arrest while shopping at the Publix on Laburnum Avenue thanked Firefighter Jake White, who was off-duty at the time, for administering CPR and an AED until a Division of Fire ambulance arrived to take him to the hospital. Because of the quick response, the resident survived the incident and is doing fine.

Non-Emergency to the Rescue!!

A resident thanked Sandy Grata, a Police Communications Officer, for providing wonderful assistance when she placed a call from work to the County’s non-emergency number seeking an ambulance for her mother. She also expressed gratitude to the Division of Fire responders, who were on the scene within minutes.

Bookmobile

A resident thanked the Public Library for the resources afforded to her, especially the Bookmobile and its friendly and helpful staff. She cited the Bookmobile as one of the best “perks” offered to Henrico citizens.

Public Utilities to the Rescue…

A resident wanted to thank the work crew from the Department of Public Utilities Rodney Thomas; Darrell Harris; Cliff Robinson; Juan Little; Milton Robinson and Leroy Smith who located and cleared a root ball drain stoppage that had stopped all water draining from his home to the street sewer line. He noted “all were clean, professional in appearance, well spoken, courteous, cooperative and did their part in an excellent manner.”  Way to Go Team….

Tree Removal

A resident called to thank Officer Nick Wieland after a small tree fell across N. Mooreland Road near their home.  As the tree was being removed Office Wieland blocked the road with his patrol car and helped clear the tree debris including the small trunk.  Great example of the work and service of Henrico Police Division nice job, Office Wieland!!!
