Flomaton Police Chief Honored By Governor, State Rep. For Saving Suicidal Man

February 13, 2018

Flomaton Police Chief Bryan Davis was recognized Monday night for his efforts to save a suicidal man last year.

Alabama Rep. Alan Baker presented Davis with a commendation and a certificate of recognition along with a commendation from Gov.Kay Ivey for the September 2017 incident in which Davis and other first responders talked a distraught man down from a 100-foot tall water tower. The man threatened to take his own life over a period of about 3.5 hours before coming down and talking with Davis.

“Chief Davis skillfully averted an attempted suicide and the State of Alabama is proud to recognize his decisive leadership and quick assertive actions that went beyond the call ofduty.

“I alone I cannot take full credit for this incident, for my department was there to assist me,” Davis said.

Baker presented the certificates to Davis during a meeting of the Flomaton Town Council Monday night.
