Sergeant Doyle Herring and Trooper Harry K. Weaver have been selected as co-recipients of the Florida Highway Patrol Trooper of the Month award for July/1996, for their actions on July 21, 1996, in which they attempted to revive a subject who was without vital signs.

On July 21, 1996, at approximately 11:55 a.m., a motorist drove to the Florida Highway Patrol office in Lake City and summoned help for his wife who was apparently having a heart attack.

Sergeant Herring and Trooper Weaver, along with Duty Officer Jacklyn Y. Daniels, immediately began administering cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) to the victim, who was later identified as Mrs. Hickman. The lifesaving efforts were continued until relieved by emergency medical personnel.

Although Mrs. Hickman later expired, both officers are commended for their efforts and the assistance provided to the Hickman family in their time of need.

Sergeant Herring is a 23-year veteran of the Florida Highway Patrol. Trooper Weaver is a 15-year veteran. Both are assigned to Troop B, Lake City.
