      Andrew Shepherd,  Mike Romias And Todd Pink Are Recognized by IBEW International For Their Life Saving Efforts

      Brothers Andrew Shepherd, Mike Romias and Todd Pink (not pictured)  were recently awarded the IBEW Certificate of Recognition for their quick actions and determination when they felt Brother Scott Collilcott showed the signs of having a heart attack.   Scott thought he was okay, but was persuaded by his crew that he needed to go to the hospital.  Shortly after arriving at the hospital, he was in surgery.  Doctors told him he had "The Widow Maker" heart attack and had he not gotten to the hospital when he did, he would not be here with us today.    Thank you Brothers Shepherd, Romias and Pink.
