Deputy Michael Bracken,

On November 15, 2018, Deputy Michael Bracken was dispatched to a possible drug overdose. On arrival, Deputy Bracken was guided to the upstairs bathroom where the complainant was administering CPR to an unresponsive male.  The complainant advised Deputy Bracken that the male was her brother and when he fell asleep, she became alarmed by the way her brother began to breathe.  The complainant also stated that her brother uses Heroin and she believed he had overdosed. Deputy Bracken turned the subject on his side to clear his airway and then placed him on his back and administered 4mg of NARCAN while the complainant continued CPR.

Gold Cross responded and the subject was transported to AUMC for further treatment. Because of Deputy Michael Bracken's prompt response to render aid and to administer NARCAN to the unresponsive subject, a life was saved.

Deputy Michael A. Bracken is an asset to the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office and the citizens of Augusta Richmond County.
