ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A couple of special guests were at the Exchange Club of Albany to thank the Paramedic of the Year.

Erica Potts and her daughter Bailey came to see Greg Hughley get his honor. On May 12th, their lives were in danger as Erica went into labor. Hughley answered their call for help. Now they're a happy, healthy family. 

"Being able to save her life, and other lives, I feel good about it," Greg Hughley, Dougherty Co. EMS Paramedic of Year.

John Thompson was named the Albany Firefighter of the Year. The 13-year veteran, who said he wanted to be a fireman since he was a little boy, got emotional when he accepted the honor.

While off-duty, Thompson helped save a woman's life by performing CPR on her when stopped breathing.
