Background Discussion

This award is presented in recognition of outstanding service achievement in the field of heroism.  While arriving at work, Mr. Pachas was with an individual that, for unknown reasons, suddenly collapsed and was in severe distress.  Mr. Pachas quickly assessed the situation, thus turning the individual on her side while supporting her head until the Paramedics could arrive to stabilize her.  Had it not been for Mr. Pachas, the distressed individual's situation could have potentially been much worse.
