If you click on the link there is picture. Officer Mick was on our Fire Department in Glenmoor for close to 5 years. Stand up guy always pushes him self to be the best at everything...
GLENMOOR, Ohio – On December 11, 2006 Saint Clair Township patrolman Scott Mick was dispatched to a neighborhood disturbance call at 2:10 p.m. After arriving on scene he observed that the disturbance was actually a structure fire in a residence. The neighbors told Officer Mick that the homeowner, Jonie Hamillin, had reentered the home to rescue her cats. Immediately the officer tried to enter the home through a side door but was turned back by the smoke and heat.
Shortly after Officer Mick was dispatched, the tones were dropped for the Glenmoor Volunteer Fire Department and the Calcutta Volunteer Fire department. Arriving in the first engine was Glenmoor’s Chief Bill Bennett and Deputy Chief Rich Griffin. Their first observation was of Officer Mick gaining entry to the burning home through a bedroom window.
Deputy Chief Griffin put on his air pack and entered the home, through the same side door that the officer had tried earlier, to locate the victim and the officer. When Griffin located the officer and the victim, the officer was handing the victim out the window to some of the neighbors.
In the meantime, Chief Bennett had set up command and called for mutual aid from Liverpool Township Fire Department, as other responding units arrived on the scene.
Firefighters entered the home with hand lines and quickly knocked down the fire and contained it to one room. Smoke and heat damage was throughout the home.
The actions of Officer Scott Mick were truly above and beyond the call of duty to save the life of the homeowner. The Glenmoor V.F.D. recognized this heroism by presenting him with an award for his actions.
The author would like to thank Rich Griffin for providing me with the details of this event.
CALCUTTA — Credited with entering a burning home to save the life of a local resident, St. Clair Township Police Officer Scott Mick was honored Tuesday night.
The emotional presentation took place during the meeting of St. Clair Township Trustees.
On Dec. 11, Mick rescued Joanie Hamilton, who happens to be his aunt through marriage, from a burning Kelly Avenue home.
“I’m going to do something bigger and better than this, I promise you all that,” said Mick through his tears.
Many members of Mick’s family were in attendance as Brace Johnson, special agent supervisor for the Bureau of Criminal Investigation Identification, presented Mick with an honorary certificate.
St. Clair Township Detective Sgt. Brian McKenzie also presented an honorary plaque to Mick as the sound of people holding back tears were heard throughout the room.
St. Clair Trustee Bob Swickard said “Only a few will actually risk their lives by running into a burning building. Selfless acts such as Officer Mick’s make us all proud.”
Trustee James Hall said Mick’s rescue shows “he gives 110 percent” to his job as a police officer.
“(Mick’s) passion for his job and for his family is obvious,” said Trustee Jim Sabatini.
The township has been going through a lot of changes lately and Sabatini said he appreciates the effort put in by new employees. “We’ve got a pretty good crew and track record. We really made the right decisions with the people we pick.”
