Background Discussion

This award is presented in recognition of outstanding service achievement in the field of heroism.  During Ms. Meeth's daily route, she approached a gentleman lying on the ground next to his motorcycle.  After maneuvering her transit bus to block traffic from possibly hitting the already injured man, she called dispatch to request an ambulance to the scene.  Stacey then got out of the bus to assist and comfort the injured man while waiting for Emergency Medical Services to arrive.
