Six Local Heroes Honored With Douglasville Medal Of Service

Segal -Tires Plus Heroes

Mayor Pro Tem Richard Segal presented six employees from Tires Plus, on Thorton Road, with the newly created Douglasville Medal of Service award.

The men were each recognized for their heroic action and quick-thinking in response to a nine-vehicle wreck that took place at the corner of Thornton Road and Waterway Circle earlier this month. With flames clearly visible as a result of the wreck, these six men sprang into action. Each rushed onto the scene wielding fire extinguishers to put out the rising flames coming from multiple vehicles, likely preventing fatalities. 

“This act of heroism is something I wanted to recognize,” Mayor Pro Tem Segal said. The Douglasville Medal of Service, which the Mayor Pro Tem described as “an award that can be given by the Mayor of Douglasville or City Councilmembers to citizens who have made an outstanding contribution to the City of Douglasville or to humanity through their talents, services, or in any other form.”

Also on hand to present awards to these six heroes was Police Chief Gary Sparks, who awarded them the Douglasville Police Department Challenge Coin. “This coin can’t get you out of jail,” Chief Sparks quipped, “but it commemorates your actions in going above and beyond to help someone in need.”
