They are being recognized for performing first aid (CPR) on a male at the Flying J service station in Kapuskasing, Ont. on April 28, 2015.

“On behalf of Commissioner Vince Hawkes and the Ontario Provincial Police, I would like to thank you for your assistance. Community Police and the unselfish actions of people such as you are important to the safety and wellness of our province,” said Shelley Nemeth, Co-ordinator, Awards and Recognition Unit, OPP, in a statement.

“Congratulations on receiving this award. Your lifesaving actions are commendable.”

The two will be invited to accept a certificate commemorating this act at a later date.

The pair have also been nominated to receive an award from St. John Ambulance for the same heroic act.
