Pat Welch

Please keep Past President (2013) Pat Welch in your thoughts.


On May 18, 2017 she suffered from an apparent heart attack.
On May 22, 2017 it was reported that she's now conscious and breathing on her own!





I come to you this evening with a major prayer request. My coworker and long time friend Pat Welch, APCO member and Past-President of the Georgia TAC Association was on duty this morning working school traffic when she collapsed with an apparent Heart Attack. Pat was down for 5-8 minutes before someone finally got CPR started. CPR was continued by EMS and Hospital, as  also she was shocked. They did get a pulse back and ground transported her to Athens Regional where she is in critical condition. We are told she would stay on the Ventilator for 2-3 days, she has a couple of 100% blockages, where stents were placed. The doctors are unsure if there is any brain damage, as she was "Dead" 5-8 minutes. I'm asking that all of you touch and agree with me that NO BRAIN damage be present and that she will recover 100%. Pat has always been one of our biggest supporters and one in which would give us up the Country if she felt something wasn't right. She was just that type of person. She and I would lock horns at the office sometimes and the Chief himself said he didn't know how we were friends, but at the end of the day, TRUE friends can do that. About three weeks ago we tied up about some GCIC madness and she threw a post-it note at me and 30 minutes later I was taking her to her doctor's appointment. The bottom line is we never let anything come between the friendship and always told each other every time we talked "I Love You". With that being said I love all of y'all. I beg of you to touch and agree with me that she will pull out of this. Those of you who know her, knows she is loyal and would do anything for anyone; under that tough look is a huge heart. Thank you all for your time and God Bless each of you! Brian Burgamy, Director Eatonton Police EMA/E-911 Vice President Georgia APCO, 706-816-9511
