Patrolman Ian Traver is our #BlueFriday honoree for this week.

Officer Travers responded to a call at a residence with a man suffering cardiac arrest. Travers connected with the victim's wife learning that he was not breathing and was unconscious. Without skipping a beat, Travers immediately began implementing life-saving efforts and got the victim breathing again.

Thanks to the life-saving efforts of Officer Traver, the man was kept alive long enough for EMTs to get him to the hospital. The victim is now recovering from the incident.
