Cpl. Eard Trimmingham,
On March 5, 2019, Corporal Eard Trimmingham, Deputy Prizette Presberry, Deputy Wallace Murphy and Deputy Richard Russell responded to 1241 10th Street in reference to a house fire. Upon arrival, deputies found the home engulfed in flames and a female screaming from inside the front door of the residence. As Deputy Presberry got to the door, it was learned that she could not open it due to a locked deadbolt on a metal security door. Deputy Presberry went to his car, got a pry bar, and immediately pried open the door allowing the female to exit the residence. After the female exited the house, she advised Cpl. Trimmingham that a male subject was still inside. Cpl. Trimmingham returned to the front of the residence to attempt to locate the subject inside the home. Cpl. Trimmingham got down on the floor of the residence and crawled through the thick smoke finding the subject unresponsive lying on the floor. Cpl. Trimmingham pulled the subject out with the assistance of other deputies. Once outside, Deputy Wallace Murphy and Deputy Richard Russell administered CPR until EMS arrived. The female subject was unharmed and the male subject was transported to Doctor's Hospital where he is in stable condition but on a ventilator. If not for the quick actions of these deputies, our community may have suffered the loss of two citizens.
