Braun would like to recognize Andrew Wallace of Keystone Emergency Vehicles ( a Braun ambulance dealer) on his outstanding achievements as a firefighter/paramedic. Andrew Wallace was recently honored at the Defense Department’s Fire & Emergency Services Awards Banquet held in Atlanta, Georgia on August 26, 2011. Wallace received the 2010 DLA (Defense Logistics Agency) Heroism Award.
The DOD Firefighter Heroism Award is an annual award that recognizes an individual or team of individuals for single acts of heroism above and beyond the call of duty. This past December, while on-duty with the Defense Distribution Center Susquehanna Fire Department, firefighter/paramedic Andrew Wallace responded to a trench rescue call in a neighboring municipality. It was reported that one victim was trapped and one victim was buried.
Upon arrival, the crew found a victim buried in a 20 foot deep trench surrounded by a 30 foot high spoil pile. The victim needed ALS (Advanced Life Support) medical attention, due to his injuries, the cold weather, and the situation. Andrew Wallace voluntarily entered the trench and risked his own life to render ALS aid while the remainder of his crew began the rescue process. Wallace spent a total of 3 hours in the trench, attending to, and helping to extricate his patient. The patient’s outcome was directly related to the bravery and Advanced Life Support provided by firefighter/paramedic Wallace.
Congratulations Andrew! Your honor was well deserved; what an awesome example of heroism! We are so proud to have you as part of the Braun family!
