Firefighters From the Jacksonville Fire & Rescue Department Honored
APRIL 15, 2015 – CYNTHIANA, KY – The firefighters from Jacksonville Fire & Rescue Department will always remember the events of December 26, 2014, when they responded to a residential house fire with adults and children trapped inside. Thanks to their training, coupled with their quick response and the use of a thermal imager these firefighters saved the lives of two adults and two children.
Firefighters from Engine 13, Engine 20, Engine 28, Squad 12, and Ladder 1, from the C Shift will be honored by Bullard on April 15th at 10:30am at the Jacksonville Fire & Rescue Department’s Headquarters. The crews will be inducted into Bullard’s Save-A-Life Club, which honors firefighters who have saved a life while using a Bullard Thermal Imager. Firefighters from the Jacksonville Fire & Rescue Department used a Bullard T3MAX Thermal Imager to save the lives of the victims trapped. The thermal imager allowed the firefighters to perform a rapid and aggressive interior search.
