Shreveport Fire Chief Ronald C. Mulford received notification that Firefighter Corey T. Cummings will be recognized by the Forty and Eight club, a national veteran’s organization, for his heroic life-saving actions during a house fire on Thursday, March 18, 2010. Firefighter Cummings will be honored during the organization’s 92nd Annual Promenade Nationale convention in Washington on Thursday, September 15, 2011.

Firefighter Cummings will receive the “2011 Hero of the Year” award for his brave rescue of a toddler from a burning house which, ultimately, saved that child’s life. At the time of the rescue, Cummings was classified as a rookie firefighter, having only served with the Department less than one year. Prior to accepting this national award, he was honored locally by Mayor Glover and the City of Shreveport by receiving the “2010 Mayor’s Award of Excellence” as well as the “Hometown Hero” award.

“Firefighter Cummings served in the United States Army and now serves the citizens of Shreveport” said Fire Chief Mulford. “We are extremely proud to have him as a member of our team”.

Founded in 1920, the Forty & Eight organization is an honor society of American veterans.
