Very nice article. However, there would not be Life Rings on the channel if not for the generosity of the New century womans Club.

Emergency personnel are trained for these types of accidents. I would not consider want to be called a 'hero' for something I am trained to do, but that's me. I am also a vol. fire fighter, and something like this, to me, would be considered a part of my job.

It was the mayor and Boro that wanted to give the awards... These men and women went back to work the next day doing the same thing they do everyday, to just help and protect others... Why is it such a big deal that they got noticed for saving a life? As you must no it's a very thankless job, so a Thanks once in a while really won't hurt will it? Gods job and Than you all for your service and a job well done.

Well done! Unless you are an EMT, firefighter, public servant or in law enforcement, you have no idea how many hours and how much effort above and beyond that these folks put into their jobs. Is it so hard to show some appreciation without someone getting catty about it?

We should all be thankful for the hard work and dedication all police, firefighters, 911 dispatcher, and EMS workers. Thank you for a job well done.

5:13 - you sound like an idiot. Personally it sounds as if you have done volunteering and never been recognized. How about you take the fact that you put you life on the line every time a call comes in. Be thankful that you are a brave enough person to do that for complete strangers. Maybe someday something will happen and you'll receive a football and a piece of paper and you'll feel better about yourself.

slap to all the vol that work full time plus put their life on the line This is just more of politicans patting themselves on the back

Great job by all these gentlemen. I find it also quite nice that the Mayor took time to say thank you for a job well done. Yes, it may be their job or what they have volunteered to do, but they were not seeking this recognition. Instead, it is simply another person saying thank you to them for possibly saving the life of a borough resident. There certainly is no harm in being polite and saying thank you.

5:13 who said they were looking for recognition.....unlike trolls like you who do nothing but look for something to complain and be negative about

In regards to '5-13', I said nothing about recognition. As a vol. firefighter, for the past 30 some years, and still active in fire service, I have personally turned down several thank yous for DOING WHAT I AM TRAINED TO DO! I did NOT join the fire service to to get name and or picture in news. And I will also decline to be called a hero. I deal and have helped hundreds of complete strangers because it's what I do and what I want to do. A lot of the folks that want to complain should join a vol. fire dept and go to training on YOUR time, aside from working full time jobs everyday. I'm glad to be a part of the fire service, and will continue to do so WITHOUT wanting any recognition. and by the way, yes, I do get an occasional thank you for doing my job, no matter the outcome.

@ well arn't you a special kind of hero then, I guess we all are not the same after all. You don't have to say anything because someone does something different then you. #TYFYS
