John Dennis honored
Following is a story posted on AL.COM about his honor. You can also find an article at The Clanton Advertiser.
HOOVER, Alabama - It started out like a routine medical call.
Hoover fire Capt. John Dennis and his crew from Fire Station No. 6 were sent to the Renaissance Ross Bridge Resort and Conference Center a little after 5 a.m. on a March morning after receiving a report of a person going in and out of consciousness and vomiting.
...
Dennis' first thought was food poisoning, but he quickly ruled that out after learning none of them had eaten the same foods. He then immediately thought something toxic might be in the room. He questioned hotel security and ruled out the room heating system when he learned it was electric, Brocato said.
Still suspicious, Dennis removed everyone from the room and ordered a carbon monoxide reading, which revealed extremely high readings of carbon monoxide, Brocato said.
...
Dennis called for more help, treated the three patients and sent them to the hospital and immediately began investigating other rooms, finding more victims, Brocato said.
...
"We are convinced that had Capt. Dennis treated these patients based upon his first impression and had he not acted upon his instincts, many people could have become sick and possibly died," Brocato said.

Jemison Fire Chief John Dennis has been working diligently for months to setup Jemison's own Emergency Transport service through the Jemison Fire and Rescue Department. Chief Dennis researched the program and funding options and presented the program to the City Council last year. With approval he pursued the required standards, equipment and other responsibilities required for the funding. Just this month he has overseen the beginning of the transport system in our City.
Chief John Dennis said the ambulance responded to three calls on the first day with the first emergency call shortly after the service started at 8 a.m. this past Monday morning.
“We wanted everything to start at 8 a.m. and it was at 8 a.m. we had our first call from someone needing an emergency transport,†Dennis said. “We wound up transporting three people with the service on the first day so it was a busy day.â€
Jemison is the first city in Chilton County to be able to provide response to 911 calls from a city-owned ambulance purchased in 2008. The city of Jemison will now have an emergency transport system through JFD as the fire and emergency medical provider for all 911 calls. Dennis said one of the benefits to having the program is it will provide a service to the residents of Jemison with the ability to respond in a timely fashion.
The Mayor and City Council thank Chief Dennis for his perseverance to improve our City's services to our residents.
...
The FEMA Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency (SAFER) grant from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security will allow the Jemison Fire Department to hire two new full-time fire personnel to enhance coverage between the normal workday hours of 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., according to Fire Chief John Dennis.
“One challenge a volunteer-based department has is assembling and responding to fire and rescue calls during working hours when members are at their jobs,†Dennis said in a release. “This grant will allow our department to have a minimum of two firefighters on full-time duty during the daytime hours. It will help to expand the protection that we are able to provide to our community.â€
Dennis said the department had been pursuing the grant for several years and was excited to be chosen as the recipient of the grant this year.
Currently, the department has two part-time paid firefighters and 20 volunteer firefighters.
Dennis said on average, JFD responds to 75 calls per month.
“This grant will allow us to be able to respond more rapidly with full credentialed personnel to manage incidents,†Dennis said.
Dennis thanked Congressman Spencer Bachus for his support of the fire grant program. “The Jemison Fire Department provides excellent service to the community and this grant will further enhance its coverage.†Bachus said in a release. “Firefighters risk their own safety and lives to protect us and deserve the resources that will allow them to respond quickly and effectively to emergency calls.
