Comments are Off

The City of Crossville Police Department has partnered with the Cookeville Regional Charitable Foundation, who has matched a donation for the City of Crossville’s purchase of 12 Epinephrine Auto-Injectors (Epi-Pens). The Epi-pens will be made available for use by trained officers for persons suffering from anaphylaxis related to acute allergic reactions to foods, insects or other life threatening allergic emergencies. These life saving devices will be on the streets of Crossville within the next few weeks, following their arrival and the training of officers. The Epi-Pens will be made available to help the citizens and visitors of the City of Crossville. The Crossville Police Department is among the first agencies in the State of Tennessee and in the country, to provide this service to those in need. The Crossville Police Department wishes to thank the Crossville City Council and the Cookeville Regional Charitable Foundation’s partnership so they can provide this greater level of service to the community.
