The Warren County Sheriff’s Office (WCSO) reports the delivery of a baby with instruction over the phone.

July 3 at approximately 2:45 a.m. the WCSO Communications Center took a call involving a woman in labor.

Officer Levalley was on duty and calmly advised the caller and helped them through the delivery process.

At the same time Levalley dispatched emergency medical personnel to the scene.

Levalley continued to provide critical instruction until the medical personnel arrived.

Less than one minute after the arrival of the newborn at 2:55 a.m. medical personnel were on the scene and delivered all to the medical facility for proper care.

Just one example of the proper training and commitment of the communications center staff of an emergency communication center who are on call 24 7 365 days a year.

Thank you Officer Levalley and congratulations to the new parents.
