Putnam County Sheriff Donald B. Smith reports that he has instituted a new life-saving program within the Sheriff’s Office. The Sheriff’s Office is the first law enforcement agency in the county to receive Narcan training. Each sworn member of the department is receiving training in administering Naloxone, commonly known as Narcan, by Thomas Lannon and Robert Cuomo, certified instructors from the Putnam County Bureau of Emergency Services.
Narcan is a special narcotic drug that reverses the effects of other narcotic substances to include heroin. It is often used to treat drug overdose or diagnostic narcotic drug addiction. Previously, Narcan was only allowed to be used by paramedics or physicians because it is a prescription drug. However, now emergency first responders can be trained to carry and administer the drug to combat the epidemic of opiate-related deaths in our area.
Deputy Sheriff Johnathon Cihanek and Sheriff Donald B. Smithh
Putnam County Sheriff Donald B. Smith proudly reports that Deputy Sheriff Johnathon Cihanek was recently honored by the Southern Dutchess Exchange Club for his acts of heroism which occurred at a Putnam Valley home on December 18, 2013.
Shortly before 10AM on December 18th, Deputy Cihanek was on patrol when he was dispatched to a private residence to check the welfare of a 70 year-old female. The welfare check was requested by the lady’s brother who had spoken to her over the telephone and feared that she may have suffered a stroke.
Upon arrival, Deputy Cihanek knocked on the front door and got no response from anyone inside the house. He was able to enter the residence through the unlocked front door where he noticed two dead dogs lying on the floor of the living room. Believing that the animals suffered from carbon monoxide poisoning, the deputy left the building for fresh air.
A short while later, Deputy Cihanek reentered the residence and found the unconscious elderly homeowner on the floor of her bedroom. He dragged the woman out of the residence and administered oxygen. Shortly thereafter, the victim regained consciousness and was transported by ambulance to a nearby hospital.
