Lifesaving Award Officer Scott Ingram

On April 30, 2015, at 0235 hours, Officer Scott Ingram responded to a toner call of a train pedestrian collision in which the pedestrian had lost his leg. Upon his arrival, Ingram climbed through the train to get to the victim, and discovered his leg was severed just below the knee, and he was bleeding profusely. Ingram directed medical personnel to arrive on the Industrial side of the train to be closer to the patient. Ingram began applying pressure to the wound, directing a trailing officer to grab the medical kit from the patrol car. With the medical kit, Ingram applied a tourniquet to the victim’s leg as he was crying in pain, explaining to him that although it was painful it was necessary to try and save his life. Ingram kept the victim alert by talking to him and asking him questions, while he tightened the tourniquet to stop the bleeding. Medical personnel stated that Ingram’s quick actions likely saved the victims life. Ingram’s actions exemplify the Flagstaff Police Department’s mission and vision of protecting and saving lives.

Lifesaving Award Officer Kory Wilcox and Corporal Collin Seay On May 2, 2015 officers responded to a report of a man hanging on the edge of a bridge on the west side of Country Club Drive over I-40. Upon arrival the subject explained he had recently lost his job and he expressed his desire to kill himself. As other officers arrived on scene, the subject moved himself closer to the edge of the overpass. The distance to the ground was estimated to be approximately 40-feet, making a fall from that height potentially lethal. Page 15
