Officer presented with Medal of Bravery for heroism in hotel fire

Good News Notes:

“Officer Justin Lancaster was presented with the Medal of Bravery at the Jackson Town Council meeting on Tuesday, February 18.

The commendation stems from an incident on November 18, 2019, when Officer Lancaster responded to a late-night fire at the Rusty Parrot Lodge.

Lancaster arrived at the scene ahead of fire and rescue crews, observed that one wall was completely engulfed in flames and notified dispatch that he would proceed with evacuation measures. To expedite his search, Lancaster obtained a guest list for the hotel and systematically began evacuating guests from the first two floors.”
