New Boston Police Chief Brace Presents two Lifesaving Awards to Officers Moran and Byam

NBPD presents two lifesaving awards!  

New Boston - 20 March 2017: Following the introduction of our newest officers, Chief Brace was proud to present two lifesaving award's to Officer James Moran and Officer Jesse Byam. 

In December 2016, both officers responded to a report of a 21-year-old man who was not conscious and barely breathing; the result of an apparent overdose. Upon arriving on scene, the officers partnered to deploy the AED and begin an assessment of the victim. Following their assessment, CPR was administered. During the resuscitation efforts, a pulse was registered and the victim begin breathing on his own. 

In partnership with the New Boston and Goffstown EMS Departments, the victim was transported to Catholic Medical Center in Manchester where he fully recovered from the medical event.  

The actions of these two young officers resulted in a life being saved.

Each officer was presented with a commendation and a life saving pin for their effort. 

We would like to congratulate both officers on a job well done
