FPD Officer Saves 3 Lives in 3 separate incidents since October 2016

Since October 2016, Officer Phan has been responsible for saving the lives of three separate people in three separate incidents.  He was first on scene at a heroin overdose and administered lifesaving naloxone, quickly saving an individual’s life. He was also on scene at two separate shootings wherein he provided immediate casualty care to two separate  gunshot victims, using combat dressings and tourniquets to stop bleeding enough to get the victims to hospitals where they eventually survived and recovered from their injuries. Yesterday, Chief Hining presented Officer Phan with a certificate of achievement for his lifesaving efforts. Needless to say, the men and women of the Fullerton Police Department are extremely proud of Officer Phan, and thankful that he has put his training and equipment to good use in the community!
