East Manatee Fire Rescue Training Officer Tim Hyden, a Braden Woods resident, was honored with the Congressional Career Service Award Sept. 17, during the inaugural 13th Congressional District Fire & Rescue and EMS Awards.
Congressman Vern Buchanan, R-Longboat Key, established the awards to give special recognition to fire-and-rescue and EMS officers, departments or units for exceptional achievement.
“To be a first responder is a demanding profession that requires sacrifice, courage and a dedication to serve others,” Buchanan said. “Every day, brave men and women put themselves in harm’s way to protect our citizens, property and society. They deserve our gratitude and respect. I believe these awards are a fitting tribute to our first responders and a reminder of the important role they play in our communities.”
An independent panel chose the award winners.
