While driving to work in August 2018, OC Transpo Special Constable Sarah Kennedy responded to smoke coming from a home. Sarah quickly alerted the family, ensured emergency services were contacted and assisted in evacuating the residents from the home safely.

As a result of Sarah’s quick actions, the family escaped safely and the fire was extinguished promptly by Ottawa Fire Services.

Today, the Transit Commission recognized the quick actions of Sarah by awarding her with an Individual Excellence Award for Heroism.
