Thank you, Albion Fire Department

Thank you, Albion Fire Department

My name is Howard Backner and I’m a resident of Lincoln.

On Dec. 4, 2020, I had a massive heart attack. Because of the heroes in the Albion Fire Department (Ladder 2), I’m able to write this letter to you almost five months later.

I wanted to thank Lt. Mike Surtless, paramedic Jason Fassnacht and FS Alex Rivet for their care, and Capt. Chris Tardie for helping get me their information so I could publicly acknowledge them. They were very professional and acted very quickly. They saved my life.
