Two Detroit Firefighters were honored Tuesday, July 17, at a ceremony at the Detroit Public Safety headquarters building. 

The first was Captain Christopher Dixon, who went above and beyond the call of duty in June. He was part of a team conducting a fire training drill at a senior care facility on Detroit’ west side when an elderly resident started having trouble breathing. The 30-year veteran jumped into action to help before EMS could arrive. 

Also recognized was Detroit firefighter Nicholas McDonald, whose courage and calm under pressure saved a life. 

It happened in June when a man fell out of his boat into a canal near the Detroit River.  Crews arrived and without hesitating, McDonald dove right into the dark, murky waters. 

Both men received Fire Commissioner citation awards for their life-saving efforts.
