Harford Co. fire volunteers to get Shock Trauma award
The Jarrettsville Volunteer Fire Company will be presented with a Maryland Shock Trauma Center Hero Award at 6 p.m. tomorrow in a ceremony at the Marriot Waterfront Hotel.
The Harford County company will be honored for helping to save two people involved in a head-on collision on Route 23 on May 7 last year. The trapped occupants of both vehicles had suffered life-threatening injuries and had to be extricated by firefighters. The rescue of one victim has been made into a video that is used to gain support for funding for Shock Trauma and emergency services. The brother of that victim has since joined the Jarrettsville company.
Shock Trauma presents two Hero Awards to fire agencies each year. This year's other winner is the Cumberland Fire Department.
