Elite EMTs, firefighters saluted

October 7, 2005

Albany -- They do lifesaving work and don't often get a lot of attention for it. But some of Dougherty County's best EMT's and firefighters got special recognition Friday.

The Exchange Club named Lt. Sebon Burns and Lt. Dewane Denney co-firefighters of the year. They are training officers for the Albany Fire Department and were honored for developing and teaching the firefighters.

The EMT of the year is Phillip Jackson, who said, "It lets you know how much the community does respect and appreciate the services that public safety does for them."

Lt. Dewayne Denney said, "240 hours of schooling, we have to have a year to maintain our certifications. It's continuously juggling fire schedule and shift work to get it all done."

Burns, Denny, and Jackson were all presented checks and plaques from the Exchange Club for their community service.
