“their courageous efforts to rescue civilians and firefighters under great stress and extremely adverse conditions."
“Captain Martinson was honored for his actions on February 11, 2009, when firefighters were dispatched to
a house fire in the 2200 block of Dan Street. Crews arrived on scene to find heavy smoke coming from a
one-story wood frame house and to make matters worse, they were told citizens, possibly children, were trapped inside the home.
Engine 19’s Captain Jeremy Martinson found an adult victim. As he started to pull her out, the smoke lifted
and he saw two small feet… a child. He told his crew to remove the adult while he carried the young girl
out of the home to waiting EMS crews… Shortly after this save; Engine 27’s crew located a second child and removed them to safety as well. All three victims were viable and transported to Hermann and Texas Children’s Hospital. Due to the training and leadership of these firefighters, three citizens are alive today and where able to meet the firefighters who rescued them several months following this incident."
