(STILLWATER, OK) – On Wednesday, Nov. 30, 2022 Stillwater Fire Department (SFD) Chief Essary and Assistant Chief Halcomb presented two Stillwater Police officers with a Certificate of Commendation Awards.

“Protecting and serving our community is a team effort, and we are incredibly grateful for our brothers and sisters in law enforcement, and the outstanding work they do every single day,” said Chief Essary.

Sgt. Cluck and Officer Johnsonbaugh responded to the area of 500 N. Husband on Oct. 26, 2022 to assist SFD and LifeNet with a medical call. The caller advised that a female subject was passed out and not breathing. Officer Johnsonbaugh arrived within seconds of the initial dispatch and began to render CPR. Sgt. Cluck arrived shortly after and assisted Officer Johnsonbaugh. The quick actions of these two officers ultimately saved a life that day.

“I am very proud of Sgt. Cluck and Officer Johnsonbaugh. Their quick response and actions directly impacted the life of one of our citizen’s, their family, and friends. Great work by both officers,” said Chief Watts.
