The dictionary definition of he·ro/hirō/ is: a person who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements or noble qualities.

On March 20, two local firefighters and first responders from the Sebeka and Verndale fire departments, two EMS personnel from Tri-County Health Care, and four Life Link helicopter crew members helped save a local young boy’s life. Their actions were honored in a ceremony held at the Sebeka Fire Hall on Wednesday, May 4, organized by Hennepin Healthcare Outreach Liaison Officer George Esbensen.

Mike Petersen and Jamie Line were also recognized by the Wadena County Sheriff’s Office, who presented them each with a Life Saving Award. . .
