LA PLATA, Md. (Feb. 4, 2016)—On Tuesday, Feb. 2, the Charles County Board of Commissioners awarded Keymar Green, a 15-year-old student at Thomas Stone High School, with a Civilian Life Safety award for saving his 5-year-old brother. When his brother stopped breathing, Green performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) until emergency personnel arrived. Green had learned CPR just two days prior. Because of his quick thinking and the fast response by emergency responders, Green's brother is alive and well today.

The following emergency personnel from the Department of Emergency Services, Waldorf Volunteer Fire Department and Charles County Sheriff's Office were also recognized for their efforts in saving the 5-year-old's life: Kelly Wilson, Michael Bruner, John Burroughs, Bill Casswell, Chelsie Zdobysz, Curtis Steinbach, Tina Tuttle, Eugene Bizzell, Ryan Allen, Steven Gordon, Tina Hagens, Jacob Hall, Nicholas Harrison, and Katy Leal.
