The City of Cleveland’s Emergency Medical Service held its 2017 Recognition Ceremony May 25, honoring the heroic actions of paramedics and citizens who saved lives.

One of the citizen honorees, Marion Johnson, was recognized for saving the lives of two people – on two separate occasions – who overdosed on heroin.

“I was just in the right place at the right time,” Johnson said. “It was a quick reaction. My instincts kicked in.”

Other honorees include Paramedic Gregory Hyde for Years of Service and Emily Metz, Program Coordinator of Project DAWN.

Congratulations to all honorees!
