Hero: A person who is admired for courage or noble qualities. 


It’s not everyday a person gets to test just what they’re made of. Some of us may never know. Some do what they can with what they have and then they are thrust into a situation that tests them. 


This is what happened to Mike Moyer, Fire/EMS chief, on February 15. As reported by EMS1.com the helicopter he was a passenger of was flying in a rescue operation with Ken Johnson the pilot and another team member Ray Shriver. They were on a mission looking for an injured snowmobiler. 


When the helicopter crashed, injured, Mike Moyer pulled his two partners out of the wreckage and dragged them to a safer area. I wish I could say he dragged them to safety but I can’t since Ray Shriver died due to injuries from the crash. 


I have recently heard many people talk about how some don’t pay attention to true heroes and remember them for what they do. I had posted about this story earlier in the week and wanted to take a moment to say, “Thank you for all you’ve done, I don’t know you personally but I know the job. And you did yours on that call. Hope you have a speedy recovery and sorry for the loss of your coworker.”
