Noah Allmond - Firehouse Magazine


    

We are proud to recognize Apparatus Operator Noah Allmond for receiving Firehouse Magazine’s Award of Valor. The October 2017 issue of Firehouse Magazine recognized all of the Valor and Community Service honorees for the year.

Noah was chosen from hundreds of nominees and was awarded $100 for his acts of courage and bravery, including physical acts to rescue a victim in hazardous conditions. Particularly, Noah’s rescue of a citizen in January 2016.

Firehouse Magazine describes the event like this:

Upon arrival at a residential fire, Apparatus Operator Noah Allmond and Assistant Chief Keith Burnette were met by a woman who said her husband was inside. Heavy smoke and flames were visible and no water supply has been established. Half of the front porch had collapsed. Noah entered and found an unresponsive man in a bedroom. Lt. Tracey Johnson and Firefighter Cody Farr helped Noah carry the man out. The was revived with CPR.

Without Noah’s willingness to put his life on the line without protective measures in place for his own safety, the call would have ended with unfavorable results and loss of life. Thank you for your service Noah and congratulations on your award!
