▪ Deputy Nick Howard earned the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office Life Saving Award. The award is given to recognize deputies who intervene when someone’s life is at risk.
In January, Howard responded to a 911 Hang Up call and found a parked, locked vehicle with its motor running, a hose connecting its exhaust pipe to one of its windows. Howard called for EMS, removed the hose and broke the car’s window to help the person inside until paramedics arrived, saving that person’s life.
Never miss a local story.
