Community Spotlight: West Dundee Officer John Scheffler
This week, Senator McConnaughay spotlights West Dundee Police Officer John Scheffler for helping save the life of a toddler found unresponsive at the bottom of a pool September 9.
Officer Scheffler was honored with the Lamplighter Life Saving Award during a ceremony December 4 at a West Dundee Village Board meeting. That event was recently featured in an article by Erin Sauder in the Elgin Courier-News.
“Our public safety personnel must respond on a moment's notice to emergency situations, and we are fortunate they have the training needed to save lives,” said Senator McConnaughay. “The family and friends of this young boy will never forget the terrifying events of September 9, nor will they ever forget Officer Scheffler's quick action to help save him."
