Two Madison County Sheriff’s Office Deputies were honored September 12th, each receiving the prestigious “Three Stars of Tennessee” at the First Responder Recognition ceremony at the Governor’s Tennessee residence in Nashville.
Sgt. Tom Knolton for his quick response to a 911 call in reference to an attempted suicide of a 27 year old male on a bridge over I-40 in April, saving his life.
Deputy Hunter Marbrey for his rapid response to a local Trailer park lot where he found a male hanging in a closet and unresponsive. He cut him down, performed CPR and revived him
until EMS arrived.
Sheriff John Mehr attended the ceremony and praised both men for utilizing their CIT (Crisis Intervention Training) with their law enforcement training to save lives.
