 Recognizing Brianna Hussein

Madame Chairman: 

I would like to recognize an individual whose actions far outpaced those we would expect from a 7 year old girl. In the early morning hours of November 17th, Brianna Hussein found her mother on the floor shaking. Displaying a level of calm some adults may not have been able to muster, Brianna placed a call to 911, explained the situation, was able to direct officers to the correct location and in so doing helped save her mothers life.

 While not usually a problem, Mrs. Hussein has taught her children what it looks like when she's having a seizure and what to do if it should occur. To correctly diagnose the situation, call 911, let them know what was going on and asked for help requires a level of wherewithal not common to such a young child. 

Demonstrating just how responsible Brianna is, the emergency responders had to assure Brianna that it was alright to let them in as her mother also told her not to let strangers into their home. 

Without objection, I ask that we invite Brianna Hussein to come before the Board on January 26th to be recognized for her courageous act.
