ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Albany Firefighter and Dougherty County Paramedics of the Year are honored by the Exchange Club of Albany.
Lt. Bruce Bennett was voted the Albany Firefighter of the Year by his peers. On August 8th, he led a crew into a burning home on 8th Avenue and rescued 30-year-old Harry Anderson who had been overcome by smoke.
The Paramedics of the Year are Leon Rolle and Luis Vazquez. On September 12th, they saved a person trapped in a car after a crash at Second Avenue and Monroe Street.
"It makes you feel real good when you are honored by the community that you want to serve," said Albany Fire Lt. Bruce Bennett.
"It's not a job that we do for any other reason but that we love it. And it's a good feeling to get a thank you from our community and our peers," said Dougherty County E.M.T. Leon Rolle.
Each year the Exchange Club of Albany honors the top first responders and gives them a plaque and a check to thank them for their service to the community.
