Bill Wickward of Engine 2, for the dramatic rescues of four trapped and unconscious children, performed at "all hands-Box #1227", transmitted at 2101 hours on 26 March, 1977 for a fire located at 628 Willard Street. Professional teamwork on the part of all units, and fast extrication by members, resulted in the saving of three lives. Units operating at all hands-1227 were Engines 6, 2, and 1, Ladder Co. 1, and the 1st Battalion under the command of B.C. Ken Penn. A job well done. A tragic note: One child succumbed to injuries, following removal from the firegrounds.
