Owen Community College's Alumni Association has chosen seven area residents to receive the 11th annual Outstanding Service Awards for their tremendous contributions to Northwest Ohio's surrounding communities.
James Dickman of Perrysburg was one of four Toledo firefighters receiving the Outstanding Firefighter Award posthumously. Captain Michael Benadum, of the Toledo Fire & Rescue Department nominated them for their outstanding efforts and bravery during a two-story building fire.
Dickman was one of the Toledo firefighters dispatched in January to an apartment fire with occupants reportedly still inside. He and another firefighter died in the building.
The recipient of the Outstanding Police Award was Sutton Flick of Findlay.
Flick, formerly of Bowling Green, was nominated by Carey Police Chief Daniel Walter for his bravery during his response to an "active shooter" situation.
On Nov. 1, Flick was on routine patrol in Carey when the Wyandot County Sheriff's Office received a report of a shooting at the Carey Conservation Club where several victims had been shot. Flick was the first officer to arrive on scene.
The awards are presented within the categories of Outstanding Police, Firefighter, Emergency Medical Technician and Service to Community.
Selection criterion is based upon a nomination process for candidates demonstrating exceptional service related to dedication, ingenuity, bravery, special skills and/or community service over a sustained period of time.
