Park Ranger James Chambers' Quick Response Saves a Life
After evacuating campers in Potter's Creek Park Sunday, May 27, due to high waters, Chambers was alerted that someone was in the lake yelling for help. Because he acted quickly and responded with his training skills, Chambers was able to retrieve the distressed man to safety. Like many other park ranges, Chambers had been properly trained and reacted. "I just happened to be in the right place at the right time. The training just took over and I just acted on it. Thankfully we were able to get to him before he went under."
Chambers received a Commander's Award for Civilian Service at the Engineer Day Awards Ceremony, June 11.
