Hometown Heros

I have been too busy to BLOG today so I am late getting this one up. Three members of the Salisbury Fire Department have been honnored by Firehouse Magazine, a national publication, for their actions on December 16th, 2007 on Washington St. in Salisbury.

Assistant Chief Jon David Black of station 16, Firefighter Steven Dickerson of station 16, and Firefighter John Demare of station 2 without the benifit of personal protective equipment or a hoseline and in disregard for their own personal safety did enter and remove three victims from the structure and initiated resusitation attempts until rescue and fire fighting units arrived on scene.

The recent issue of Firehouse Magazine was released today. More on this story can be found at:

The three individuals actually removed 1 victim. CPR was completed. A second attempt was made and high heat and smoke chased them out. The second victim was located and R16 made entry to remove. The third victim was found after the fire was knocked within feet of the second entry area.
