City of Calhoun Police Department –
Several Calhoun Police Department Officers were recognized on Monday of this week for their heroism after more than fifteen residents of a local nursing home had to be evacuated when a fire broke out at the facility.
CPD Officers were the first to arrive and rushed into the smoke-filled wing of the building and immediately began to carry residents to safety .
” These officers entered a smoke-filled building without any of the safety equipment needed and literally carried bedridden patients to safety. I am very proud to have such fine officers under my command” Chief T. Pyle
