CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (CLARKSVILLENOW) – Deputy Ethan Moss was the recipient of a Tennessee Senate Joint Resolution to honor and commend him for his heroism.
In February, Moss responded to a 911 call in the 700 block of Merritt Lewis Lane. Upon arrival he found the homeowner unconscious and not breathing. Moss administered the automated external defibrillator (AED) and started CPR.
After two minutes the homeowner started breathing on his own and was transported by Emergency Medical Services (EMS) to the hospital, where he made a full recovery.
Moss is a four-year veteran of the Sheriff’s Office. Prior to working as a deputy, he served in the United States Army. He completed two tours of duty, one in Afghanistan and one in Iraq.
Senator Mark Green presented Moss the Resolution on behalf of himself and Representatives Curtis Johnson, Joe Pitts, and Jay Reedy.
The Sheriff’s Office annually partners with EMS to provide deputies training on life saving measures like AED’s and CPR. Deputies are often the first on scene to respond to medical emergencies.
“It is honor to be recognized,” said Moss. “I want to thank Senator Green for taking the time to present this to me and Sheriff Fuson for providing the training that equips us to handle every situation we encounter in the field.”
