Six members of Alamance County’s rescue unit recently went above the call of duty – in a very literal sense – and received first place in a state competition as a result of their efforts.
During this year’s convention of the N.C. Association of Rescue & Emergency Medical Services, this six person contingent from Alamance County managed to out-hustle the competition in a simulated rescue exercise that involved retrieving a “victim” from an elevated platform.
The group’s achievement has since earned a commendation from the Alamance County’s commissioners, who recognized the sextet at their latest regularly-scheduled meeting on Monday.
Five members of the team were present that evening to receive this signal honor from county manager Bryan Hagood (first photo, back to camera) and John Paisley Jr. (far right, facing forward), the chairman of Alamance County’s commissioners. The honorees included (first photo, left to right) Alex Beaver, Christopher Mauney, and Hasten Watson,
along with Julie Garner (second photo, far right) and William Mauney (second from right, navy blue jacket).Also on hand were fellow rescue unit volunteer Steve Lineberry (second photo, second from left) and the unit’s chief Nick Martin (far left, holding framed certificate).
