Medal of Valor:
        Crew: Rodney Discher, Rick Moran (Parkesburg PD), Brian Gathercole (Chief 8)
        Synopsis: On November 20, 2015 at 12:35am, Keystone Valley Fire Department and Medic 93 was dispatched to Rt 10 in front of 151 N. Church St for a 2 vehicle accident with entrapment. Chief 8 arrived onscene and confirmed entrapment. Upon arrival of the rescue truck and ambulance the pick-up truck with entrapment caught fire. Officer Discher, Sgt. Moran, and Fire Chief Gathercole rapidly extricated the patient. Without the quick action of the police officers and fire chief the patient's outcome most likely would have been worse than the injuries that were ultimately sustained.

The Parkesburg police officers were not able to attend.
