Governor's Public Safety recognizes four conservation rangers at ceremony

Posted: Updated:
Social Circle, Ga. -  Four conservation rangers with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources' Law Enforcement Division were recognized at the 2013 Governor's Public Safety Awards ceremony. 

RFC David Brady, Sgt. Chris Hodge, Sgt. Mark Carson, and Cpl. Michael Crawley were all recognized. RFC Brady and Sgt. Hodge were instrumental in saving a boating victim on Manhead Sound near St. Simons Island in June 2013. Sgt. Carson worked with a Brunswick police officer to grab a potential suicide jumper from the Sidney Lanier Bridge in Brunswick and pull the potential jumper to safety. Cpl. Crawley was able to locate four lost hunters on the Ogeechee River. The hunters were in waist deep water about a mile from the river bank. One of the hunters panicked when he was instructed to swim and Cpl. Crawley had to dive in to rescue him.

Awards given at the ceremony are dedicated to the men and women of the Georgia public safety community in recognition of their acts of heroism, outstanding deeds and exemplary performance that enhances their profession.
