The American Red Cross has announced members of Cedar Falls Public Safety as the recipients of Lifesaving Awards through the Red Cross Lifesaving Awards Program.

The Lifesaving Awards celebrate the actions of Red Cross-trained Professional Responders and Healthcare Professionals for extraordinary service in the line of duty. Cedar Falls Public Safety personnel involved in three incidents this past year will be receiving the honor during a ceremony on December 14, 2022, at 10:00 a.m. at the Public Safety Building (4600 South Main Street).

"The dedication of these individuals to serve others, to remain calm in the face of intense adversity, and work selflessly to protect their community is truly what it means to be a first responder," said Cedar Falls Public Safety Director Craig Berte. "We thank them for all they do for the people of Cedar Falls and congratulate them on this well-deserved honor."
