Each month, Signal 88 Security recognizes up to two heroes who go above and beyond to secure peace of mind for members of their communities. This month, join us in recognizing the heroism of Supervisor Joshua Ohlfest and Officer Aranza Monroy from Signal 88 Security of Arlington Heights, Illinois.
While on duty at their assigned property, Ohlfest and Monroy were alerted to a brush fire outside one of the nearby buildings. Upon further investigation, they discovered a small fire that had begun climbing up the side of the building.
Without hesitation, Ohlfest grabbed a fire extinguisher from his patrol vehicle and extinguished the flame.
Once the scene was cleared, Ohlfest and Montroy utilized the property's video surveillance to determine the origination of the fire: a cigarette that had been thrown into a bush and abandoned. They then worked with the local police to assist in identifying the individual.
Ohlfest and Monroy acted in a way that minimized the damage to the client property and ensured the safety of all residents that were living in the apartment complex.
