LawMan’s Bishop Wins Life Saver Award
The Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office has presented Deputy Bryan Bishop with a Life Saver Award for his quick reaction to a motorcycle accident this past July. When Bishop was dispatched to a single vehicle crash involving a motorcycle on State Road 65 on July 4, 2014, he had to use a tourniquet procedure on the victim’s leg to stop substantial blood loss. The application of a tourniquet is one of the most effective ways to stop the bleeding and save a life.
The Life Saver Award is a lifetime award. It may be presented, upon order of the Sheriff, to any member of the Sheriff’s Office for their actions in the line-of-duty that had they not acted, a human life would probably have perished at that time. Bishop received a certificate and a red and white uniform ribbon.
Bishop, who is also one of the co-founders of LawMan Security and Consulting, a professional security company based in Evansville, IN, had been trained for this life-threatening situation. LawMan offers this same training for the tourniquet procedure to anyone who might encounter an emergency situation. LawMan’s tourniquet course teaches trainees how to recognize the need for a tourniquet and how to properly apply one using a combat application tourniquet (C.A.T.), the official tourniquet of the U.S. Army.
