The Exchange Club of Albany recognized Albany's top emergency responders Friday and thanked them for their service to the community.
The Club moved up the recognition to coincide with the 9/11 remembrance.
Friday they honored Albany firefighter Frank Flanigan who helped the owner of a Twice the Ice machine who got his arm caught up in the machinery just last month.
Jeff Rambo was named EMT of the year for his quick response the night Dougherty County Police Lt. Cliff Rouse was shot and killed.
Both showed honor and dedication during tough calls.
"That was tough Elizabeth and I my current partner we responded on that call together and we had both just worked with Cliff the week prior on a really kind of unusual situation and it really hit home real quick," said Jeff Rambo, EMT of the year.
"We had about the size of a refrigerator to work with, we got a victim, two EMS were in there with us and two fire fighters working in this confined area and by the EMS being there so quick they were able to stabilize the patient while we were doing the cutting," said AEO Frank Flanigan, Firefighter of the year.
Both men say they're honored to receive the awards but were quick to credit their co-workers for their hard word and dedication.
