Several people, including one young firefighter, were given special awards in Hanover Township for years of service and even saving lives.
Travis Temarantz is 22 years old, but already, has received several medals and awards for firefighting.
It was May 14 when the call came in, a fire at Lee Park Tower, a high rise.
Temarantz, a Hanover Township volunteer, was the first on scene.
"I think it's an honor, first off, but it's not so much about what happened that night, it's the fact that you get to see somebody live another day because of what happened," said Temarantz.
Temarantz saved a man inside an apartment filled with smoke, and a woman sleeping next door. For that, he was honored.
The man he saved was even there to see it.
"I just thanked him and I am very grateful," said Charles Miller.
Temarantz is now a career firefighter in Nanticoke.
His father, a deputy chief in Hanover Township could not be prouder.
