BEREA, Ky. (WKYT) - Timothy Schlomann has been with the Madison County Fire Department since 2015.

He was honored Tuesday with a service award for his commitment to preserving life and property while off duty.

On September 26th, Schlomann witnessed a car driving erratically on New Circle Road in Lexington.

Once stopped at a stoplight, Schlomann got out of his car and went to the driver, who was suffering from a diabetic emergency.

Schlomann immediately called 911 and stayed at the scene until medical services arrived.

Chief Marvin Hereford of the Madison County Fire Department, presented Schlomann with a Meritorious Service Award for his actions.

"It's a good representation of our team and the people that we're trying to hire over there, and this is what we want to promote. These are the kinds of people we want in our community and serving our community that go that extra mile whether on duty or off duty to serve this community," Chief Hereford said.
