Citizens Recognized for Acts of Heroism

December 7, 2016 3:53 PM

Last night the Common Council and I formally recognized these brave men for their acts of heroism by presenting them with an honoring resolution.

Freddie Carter and Greg Gersbach who both work for MMSD, along with three construction workers noticed a burning smell on the morning of August, 26th and called 911.

They didn't stop there, instead they went to check the house that was on fire and heard someone struggling inside. They were unable to get the front door open, but pushed a fan out of an open window and spotted the resident.

The men encouraged the occupant, who was weak from the smoke, to make his way to the window, where they were able to reach inside and pull him to safety! I am proud to have citizens such as these among the residents of our great City.
