Jacey Montague from Alton Recognized as 9-1-1 Hero!
On October 24, 2014, Alton Fire Department hosted an award ceremony for Jacey Montague. Jacey called 9-1-1 on October 5, 2014 for her grandfather, Tom Montague. Jacey and her 'Papa' were on a nature walk when Tom was struck unconscious by a tree. Jayce ran to her grandfather's home and called 9-1-1. She stayed on the phone until help arrived and then led rescue crews to him. Tom sustained a broken neck and pelvis. Alton Fire Chief Ryan Heath said, "<Tom> would not have survived his injuries if she didn't call when she had."
9-1-1 Emergency Medical Dispatcher Will Gourgiotis (pictured above) presented Jacey with a 9-1-1 Hero award and a basket of 9-1-1 goodies.
