Sgt. Nathan Sullivan, received a Letter of Commendation from Cherokee County Assistant Fire Chief, Eddie Robinson last Friday at the Cherokee County Fire Training Center. The letter congratulated Sullivan for recently heading up the “Stop the Bleed” campaign with the Cherokee County School District (CCSD).
According to Chief Robinson, “On August 29th, 2017, you sent me an email requesting permission to pursue opportunities with the Cherokee County School District regarding the “Stop the Bleed” campaign. Under your leadership and direction, you trained over 300 CCSD teachers, administration and support staff on how to apply direct pressure, tourniquets and assist victims of an emergency situation. The training you facilitated also provided “Stop the Bleed” emergency kits for each school, containing tourniquets, gauze, and other medical supplies needed to control severe bleeding.”
Sgt. Sullivan met with CCSD employees for training on May 30th. All CCSD schools participated in the training, which was held at 18 school sites across the county. According to Sullivan, “This campaign would not have been possible without the help of 100+ people from the fire department, Cherokee County Schools, Northside Cherokee Hospital and other health professionals in the county who came and assisted with the program.”
Congratulations to Sgt. Nate Sullivan for his commitment and service to the community and for a job well done.
