Albany firefighter honored for heroic actions

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany city leaders honor a firefighter for his heroic actions.

Albany Firefighter David Smith was presented the firefighter of the year award tonight at the City Commission meeting by Douglas Green. Smith saved Green's life back in June, pulling the unconscious man from under a bed in his burning home.

Smith performed CPR until EMS arrived. Smith credits the rescue to the great training he's received at the Fire department and other members of his team.
