Albany- The firefighters who used a new, portable defibrillator on a woman got more recognition today.

Robert Taylor, Frederick Hagans, and Kevin Prince got medals from the American Heart Association today. They say they are not heroes, but appreciate being honored.

"A lot of times public safety, police, firemen, EMS we really don't get the appreciation that we deserve because we constantly put our lives on the line and the jobs that we do nobody can just walk off the street and do, you have to be trained," says fireman Robert Taylor.

The firemen used the machine to get the woman's heart going until paramedics got there. Paramedics administered CPR and saved the woman's life.
