Background Discussion

This award is presented in recognition of outstanding service achievement in the field of heroism.  While at work, Mr. Johnson and Mr. Stanton witnessed a gentleman and his lawn mower slide down the bank of  a canal.  They quickly climbed down to assist the gentlemen, ensuring his safety, called 911, and stayed with him until an ambulance could arrive.  Because of their quick thinking and responding quickly, a potentially life threatening accident was relegated to an unfortunate event.
