Two Employees Praised For Heroic Efforts

Two Taylorville Township employees were honored for their actions during a house fire in Hewitville on March 2nd. Leroy and Shawn Ackerman were checking roads in Hewitville that were to be repaired when the men spotted a house fire.  Upon hearing a resident calling for help, both men sprung into action forcing open a door, and pulling the occupant of the home to safety.  For their selfless and courageous act, both men were presented with a Lifesaving Award from the Taylorville Fire Department.


The awards were presented to Leroy and Shawn Ackerman by Taylorville Fire Chief Matthew Adermann and Christian County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Jim Baker.  Along with family and township personnel, the Taylorville Fire Department, the Christian County Sheriff’s Office, and Taylorville Mayor Bruce Barry were on hand to express their sincere gratitude towards these men and their selfless actions.
