    all i can say is that every one had there place and . heroic as it is . im sure those who thought those firefighters and medic where rude. need to walk the road a firefighter medic . does. and do what they do . yes that is brave of them. people to jump in and help but. i believe the firefighters and medics desrve a little pat on the back for what they do day in and day out.

    Many thanks to our “Hometown Heros”. You were all in the right place at the right time and risked your own safety for a stranger.

    I cannot thank you enough! Bobby, Trevor, Victoria, and Mike. You are true heros. You are angels to me. I hope that you get the recognition you deserve! I am so glad that Abby is in good hands as well. God Bless you all. Thank you!!

    On behalf of Sue’s daughters, I want to thank you for helping out my mother-in-law. Obviously, without your immediate assistance, this would have been a tragic story rather than a heroic one. Again, thank you very much, and God Bless you all.

    What Bobby says is true. Bobby, Trevor, my daughter Victoria and I were in the water way before the squad was on scene. The water was very cold and Sue was originally conscious when I got out to her. The truck sank fast from that point and we could not free her. The paramedic did use my knife to cut the seat belt, but my daughter and I pulled the woman to the shore. It is hard to believe that two high school students responded so heroically at a scene like that. It is nice to know that people like Trevor and Bobby are there to help when someone is in trouble. You guys are heros, Thanks!!!!!!!!

    Myself and two other men, one a Senior at Centerburg High School were the first people in the water. We were in long before the COJFD arrived, and it was one of the other gentlemen with me who had the knife. We could not get her out, because she had passed out, and the truck was sinking. I can honestly say that the COJFD, were extremely disorganized, and rude. Other than the one paramedic who jumped in after us, the rest were very crass, and rude to the three people who leaped in when the truck began to sink. Trevor and Mike, God Bless you both.
