On November 29, 2018, at approximately 10:26AM, our officers responded to the 1100 block of Hillsboro Mile in reference to a report of a construction worker who had suffered a severed limb. Sgt. Andrew Kirchoff arrived within minutes and immediately applied a tourniquet and emergency trauma dressing to the injury. Broward Sheriff’s Office Fire Rescue paramedics arrived on scene, stabilized the victim and transported him to the hospital. It is our understanding that Sgt. Kirchoff’s prompt action, and application of the tourniquet significantly contributed to this life saving effort. It is most fortunate that in this particular incident Sgt. Kirchoff, who is our department’s CPR and First Aid instructor, was first on scene. Sgt. Kirchoff happens to be responsible for our acquiring, training and implementation of these lifesaving tools in our department’s emergency kits. Broward Sheriff’s Office Fire Rescue Unit’s prompt response and emergency assistance is greatly appreciated. OSHA was contacted and is currently investigating the incident. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victim and his family!
