Heroes at a downtown Utica fire will be honored

Posted by wlpo on September 11, 2015

An ice cream social this weekend in Utica will also be a time to thank heroes.

Firefighters Robbyn Travis and Andy Brown will receive the department’s “Medal of Valor Award” after they rushed into a burning downtown apartment this past Mother’s Day. Utica paramedics Bonnie Lucas and Debbie Bierbom will get “Lifesaving Awards” for reviving the 60-year-old fire victim. The victim survived the fire and is now recovering with his family in Colorado.

Besides the awards ceremony, Saturday’s ice cream social will also include fire truck rides and a chance to check out the life flight helicopter. The social runs from 4 until 8 at the Utica fire station.

There’s no cost but donations are accepted.
