Good Samaritan Award – Mr. Jeremey Perez 

On the evening of December 3rd, the Fire Department was dispatched to a structure fire on E. Lincoln Street.  As the Fire Department was responding they were informed that an elderly woman may be trapped in her apartment.  Upon arrival, the Fire Department units were met by Mr. Perez who had forced the apartment door open and put the fire out.  Mr. Perez ensured the woman wasn't harmed by smoke or fire and assisted her outside.  This incident could have gone much differently had he not reacted quickly to stabilize the scene before the Fire Department got there.  It is for these selfless actions that evening that the Appleton Fire Department recognized Mr. Perez with the Good Samaritan Award.
