It’s all about courage and bravery as members of the West Parry Sound OPP and the Britt and Area Fire Department receive the Commissioner’s Citation for Lifesaving.

The presentations were made Wednesday, September 26th in conjunction with St. John Ambulance at the North East Region OPP Awards Ceremony in North Bay.

The award recognizes acts of lifesaving by a member of the public or the OPP. The rescue crew was responsible for getting an injured man to the hospital during a harrowing snowmobile rescue on the frozen Key River in January of this year.
