Each month, Signal 88 Security recognizes a hero who went above and beyond in providing peace of mind. This month, join us in recognizing the heroism of Officer James Jarmen of Signal 88 Security of Tulsa, Oklahoma.
While on his regular foot patrol of a local apartment complex, Jarmen heard a smoke detector going off in the distance and upon further investigation was able to locate the source of the noise. Looking into the apartment, Jarmen could see smoke building and began knocking on the door and windows to alert the residents of the smoke and potential fire taking place in the apartment. After several attempts, Jarmen was able to get the resident to open the door and discovered the resident's oven engulfed in flames.
Jarmen was able to rescue the resident, along with three small children from the apartment and into safety. Once the family was secure and having alerted the local fire department, Jarmen raced back into the apartment putting out the fire before it escalated to other areas of the complex. Jarmen was able to prevent extensive damage to the apartment, the complex and the lives of many others, saving a family of four.
James, we truly thank you for your vigilance, and quick-thinking under immense pressure to save the lives of a family and many others. We are honored to have you as a member of the Signal 88 family.
