CHARLESTON, W.Va.--On the night of Sept. 27, co-workers watched as Charleston Fire Department Capt. David Basham scaled a ladder and struggled to dismantle a window air-conditioning unit to help get an elderly man out of his burning Kanawha City home.

Basham further impressed his crew by taking off his oxygen mask - smoke eventually would pour out the window and into his face - and giving it to the victim so he could breathe.
It was that act of on-the-job bravery that earned Basham this year's title of Charleston's firefighter of the year.
Basham was honored Wednesday during a ceremony at Fire Station 2 on the West Side, along with paramedic David Hodges, who was named emergency medical services worker of the year.
...
"Our guys work hard, and David Hodges sets a high bar for the medics just like Dave Basham sets an extremely high bar for the firefighters."
...
Basham, 45, said he was overwhelmed by the award.
The captain, who works out of Station 6 in Kanawha City, has been around firefighting for most of his life. His father, who worked for years as a railroad engineer, is the oldest member of the Malden Volunteer Fire Department in eastern Kanawha County, where he has served for 48 years.
Basham volunteered at Malden for a year or so before signing on at Charleston, where he has worked since 1995.
...
Basham then climbed the ladder to try to get the man out a window.
He said he knew Miller had been inside and inhaling smoke and heat for too long and that he likely wouldn't be able to survive much longer.
"He'd already been in it so long," Basham said of Miller.
...
Basham continued struggling with the window air conditioner to create an exit.

Basham also was taken to the hospital that night to be treated for smoke inhalation.
"Even though (Miller) succumbed to his injuries later, it was that he went above and beyond what he was called to do," Winter said of Basham's rescue efforts.

David Basham, make no mistake he is a Hero.
...
That is my brother David Basham that is only one of the heroes that they honored. His men under him thought he deserved it and he did. Trust me, they are all heroes!!!! We almost lost David because he went way above the call of duty to try to save another human. There are many who are quick to judge, but you are the ones who do nothing but sit and wish you could be 1/2 of the man that they are. I hope that you never have to be in the situation that would you to have your life in their hands, and if you are, I hope you get someone as compassionate as David there to help you. Great job Dave and all the other firefighters and EMTs who put your life on the line daily to save others and their properties.
...
Guess what, I know David and I know what kind of man he is. If it were you in that house, he would save your sorry butt too, which is more that I can say that I would do. David is my brother, and yes that man did die, but did David give his family a few days to see him and say goodbye to him.
