A Florissant middle school student is alive today thanks to the quick actions of school officials and the School Resource Officer.

According to Florissant police, Officer Kim Berry was at her post at Cross Keys Middle School on March 31, when she was asked to respond to the school gymnasium for a report of a student having seizures.

When Officer Berry arrived, she discovered that a 14 year old male student was not breathing and did not have a pulse.

Officer Berry and physical education teacher Scott McMurry immediately began CPR while the principal and school nurse arrived from the school office with the Automated External Defibrillator or AED.

One shock was delivered and CPR was continued until the student began to breathe on his own.  

Paramedics from the Florissant Valley Fire Protection District arrived quickly and the victim was then transported to an area hospital where he is recuperating and is expected to make a full recovery.  

The AED used in this incident was purchased by the Ferguson-Florissant School District, which has them in every district building.

Florissant Police Department now has a prescription/non-prescription drug disposal box permanently located in the lobby of the Florissant Police station.

This box was the first one given to a municipality by the Missouri Prescription Pill and Drug Disposal organization, the largest organization of its kind in the United States. 

Florrisant police Chief Timothy J. Lowery and Mayor Thomas P. Schneider say the box provides a safe location for citizens to properly dispose of unused prescription/non-prescription medications and an environmentally safe alternative to disposing of both prescription non-prescription medications in landfills and sewer systems which may negatively affect the environment. 

The secured, steel collection box in the lobby of the police department is accessible to citizens any time of the day or night 365 days a year. Once collected, the drugs will be properly disposed of by incineration.  

Items that will be accepted include:

Prescription medications 

All over-the-counter medications

Pet medications

Vitamins and supplements

Medicated ointments, lotions, creams, and oils

Liquid medications in leak-proof containers
