Officer earns Lifesaving Award

Cranberry’s Board of Supervisors presented police officer Josh Shimko with the Township’s Lifesaving Award at its August 31 meeting. The award was given out of appreciation for his timely use of a tourniquet to staunch the arterial bleeding of a gunshot victim on August 7 at a home on Marshall Road. Following training from Cranberry EMS earlier this year as part of a regional Stop the Bleed campaign, the Township’s police officers each received a tourniquet from UPMC and the Jewish Healthcare Foundation. Those tourniquets are now part of the standard supply kits carried on the department’s patrol vehicles.
