February 18, 2020 – The EM West Valley Demonstration Project (WVDP) commended the captain of the site’s security force in a ceremony last week for his lifesaving response to a member of the local sheriff’s office.
WVDP security officers and Cattaraugus County Sheriff’s Office representatives were having lunch at WVDP in January when Capt. James Madden observed Sgt. Jason Dry choking. Madden rushed to Dry and applied the Heimlich maneuver. After three attempts, a blockage was removed, allowing Dry to breathe freely. Link to update
