Just another day in Carmel, New York, right? We’re sure many will recognize this intersection, Fair Street and Gleneida Avenue or Route 52 or Smadbeck Avenue, depends who you ask and how long they’ve been in town. Big goings on in the center of town, a four car accident. Standing on the left is Deputy Vincent Gugliuzza, PC-23 and if you knew Vinny or Vince, you can tell what he was thinking at this time, I wish I took today off. On the far left is the Putnam County Courier’s very own, Buzz Burr. Buzz was the Eric Gross of the 70’s, 80’s and early 90’s, a great guy and friend of the Sheriff’s Office. Check out the cars, the bell-bottoms, oh, and the hair. See anyone you know? ca 1974 #throwbackthursday #putnamsheriffny #putnamcountyny #putnamhistory #carmelny

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation which designated May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which that date falls as Police Week.

Two Women Rescued From Carbon Monoxide Poisoning in Carmel Home

–MOTHER’S GARBLED TEXTS TO DAUGHTER PROMPTED FRIEND’S CHECK & DISCOVERY OF UNCONCIOUS VICTIMS –

–WOMEN CARRIED TO SAFETY BY RESCUERS–

Town of Carmel Police Chief Michael Cazzari, Carmel Volunteer Fire Department Chief David DiRienzo and the Putnam County Sheriff report that two women were rescued on Monday, November 13th, after they were rendered unconscious by carbon monoxide poisoning in their Carmel home. The victims, women aged 61 and 89, survived after rescuers carried them out of the house.

At around noon on November 13th, the 61-year-old woman sent text messages to her daughter, who was out of the area. As those messages became incoherent, the daughter became concerned and tried to telephone her mother. When her mother did not answer the phone, the daughter called a friend and asked her to check on the welfare of her mother and grandmother at the house, a single family residence on North Gate Road in Carmel.

The friend went to the house, where she heard the sound of a carbon monoxide alarm going off inside and could see the 89-year-old grandmother lying unconscious on the floor in a bedroom near the front door. The friend called 911 and reported the situation.

Within a few minutes, Carmel Police Department Officer James Terrazas, Carmel Fire Department Firefighter Joseph Fernandez and Sheriff’s Deputy Andrew Kristan arrived at the scene. Officer Terrazas and Firefighter Fernandez went into the house and pulled the grandmother from the front bedroom to the front door, as Deputy Kristan searched the house for more victims. The deputy found the 61-year-old woman unconscious in a back bedroom, and he and Officer Terrazas carried her out of the house.
