Deputy Wins Lifesaving Award

Every day first responders put their lives on the line and even more so when on a call. Recently, a St. Clair County Sheriff’s Deputy was presented with a department Lifesaving Award. Deputy Stacie Miller was called to the scene of a house fire in Fort Gratiot Township shortly after 10:00 p.m. on May 9th . When she arrived, flames were coming out of the windows of the residence. According to St. Clair County Central Dispatch, there was a 70 year old woman in the residence who was handicapped and unable to exit. Deputy Miller went to the entrance of the fully engulfed home and assisted Norma down the ramp. She was then transported by Tri-Hospital EMS to McLaren Port Huron. Sheriff Tim Donnellon states that he is proud of Deputy Miller’s quick actions at the scene. Without regard for her personal safety, she went in and got the homeowner out. Without Deputy Miller’s fast response, the woman likely would have died in the fire.” Congratulations to Deputy Stacie Miller for protecting the lives of St. Clair County citizens.
