PROPOSED RESOLUTION

 

THANKING POLICE OFFICERS ROBERT CAVAIANI AND NICHOLAS PICICCI FOR THEIR LIFE-SAVING WORK

 

WHEREAS, when Chicago police officers Robert Cavaiani and Nicholas Picicci arrived on the scene of a medical emergency at the 3100 block of North Marmora Avenue on November 8, 2015, the situation was bleak; and

 

WHEREAS, officers Robert Cavaiani and Nicholas Picicci were faced with a 62-year-old man unresponsive on the floor of his bathroom showing no signs of heartbeat or breathing; and

 

WHEREAS, officers Cavaiani and Picicci quickly and calmly assessed the situation and began performing CPR on the man; and

 

WHEREAS, after five minutes of officers Cavaiani and Picicci performing CPR, the man’s pulse returned; and

 

WHEREAS, the  Chicago Fire Department then brought the man to Community First Medical Center, where hospital staff confirmed that had it not been for the efforts of police officers Robert Cavaiani and Nicholas Picicci the man would have died; and

 

WHEREAS, police officers Cavaiani and Picicci exhibited Ernest Hemingway’s definition of courage: “grace under pressure”; and

 

WHEREAS, the quick thinking and focused response of the officers is particularly impressive given that it was police officer Picicci’s first day on the job.

 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Cook County Board of Commissioners does hereby offer its sincerest thanks to Officer Cavaiani and Officer Picicci.

 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that a ceremonial copy of this resolution be presented to the officers as a sign of the Board’s gratitude.
