Life Saving Award

Life Saving Award

On April 25th, 2020, Police Officer Thomas Pratt responded to a report of a 19 month old child that was not conscious, alert or breathing. Upon arriving at the scene Officer Pratt made a quick assessment of the situation and the child’s condition and proceeded to administer life saving assistance. Officer Pratt was able to clear a large obstruction from the child’s airway and breathing was restored. His quick alert actions, ability to assess the situation and act swiftly during a highly stressful time resulted in saving the child’s life. His actions on that day are not only appreciated by the City of Glens Falls Police Department but also by the child’s family.

Officer Pratt was awarded the Life Saving Award by Chief Anthony Lydon at a  ceremony at the Glens Falls Police Department on May 5th, 2020.

Thank you for your dedication to the Glens Falls Police Department as well to the City of Glens Falls. Congratulations on a well-deserved award. The department is proud of your accomplishment.
