The City Council held their monthly regular. Meeting last night in the council chambers inside city hall on East Walnut street. The meeting acted as both the regular meeting and a public forum.
The first item of business on the agenda was recognizing two people involved in a heroic story that swept through the community last week when Officer Sierra Reprogal, of the City of Dickson Police Department, delivered a baby on a 911 call.
The Dickson County 911 dispatchers received a call early Tuesday morning from Brian Crumley, of Perry County, saying that his wife, Bridgette, was in labor and they were headed to TriStar Horizon Medical Center. Reprogal responded to the message along with officers Michael Carter and John Suddoth Jr. and they followed the van.
After reaching the travelling vehicle, they stopped in a car dealership parking lot on Highway 46 where Reprogal delivered Crumley’s daughter safely.
“We just wanted to recognize you all tonight for your work and for what you did for our community,” Mayor Weiss said in the recognition.
Along with Officer Reprogal, Chelsea Lampley, the telecommunicator who received the 911 call from Crumley, was also recognized. Both were greeted with a round of applause and a standing ovation.
Crumley and her daughter, who now has Reprogal’s first name as part of her middle name, were both transported safely to TriStar Horizon Medical Center in Dickson and are recovering well.
