Each month, Signal 88 Security recognizes one to two heroes who went above and beyond to secure peace of mind for members of their communities. This month, join us in recognizing the heroism of Officer Lauren Eck, Michael McDonald and Jason Browning of Signal 88 Security of Edmond.
As Officer Eck was finishing his nightly patrols in Southwest Oklahoma City, he came across a small cloud of smoke coming from an apartment building. Upon further investigation, Lauren discovered one of the apartments fully engulfed in flames. Immediately, Lauren dispatched Oklahoma City Fire, Police and EMS, as well as two fellow officers in the area, McDonald and Browning for additional assistance.
Officer Eck then ran towards the flames, and just as he came upon the fire an elderly woman fell to the ground outside of her apartment. Lauren quickly removed the woman from the danger and into safety, then proceeded along with Officers McDonald and Browning to evacuate all nearby apartments.
Throughout the course of approximately 10 minutes, all officers were successful in evacuating 14 apartments in total and help local fire, police and EMS control the scene. The elderly woman and all other residents sustained no injury during the fire. Due to Officer Eck and fellow officers McDonald and Browning's quick action and bravery, prevented a dangerous situation from escalating.
