Trooper Elizabeth M. Rupp
Troop K - Pompano Beach

Trooper Elizabeth M. Rupp has been selected as the Florida Highway Patrol Trooper of the Month for June/1996, for her actions on June 3, 1996, in which she revived a subject who was without vital signs.

On June 3, 1996, Trooper Rupp stopped to investigate a vehicle that had slid off the roadway and down an embankment. As she approached the vehicle, she found the driver lying in the front seat unconscious. Checking further she found that the subject had no vital signs. Trooper Rupp immediately called for emergency medical personnel and then began administering life support to the subject.

Trooper Rupp continued administering life support until the subject began breathing on his own. Shortly after reviving the subject, he was transported to a local hospital where he received treatment.

Trooper Rupp’s quick thinking and the aid she provided to this subject without question saved his life.

Trooper Rupp is a nine-year veteran of the Florida Highway Patrol assigned to Troop K, Pompano Beach.
