Syracuse Firefighter Receives Red Cross "Real Heroes" Award

Syracuse, N.Y. - The Syracuse Fire Department announcing some good news today.

Lieutenant Edward Lehmann has been chosen to receive the 2020 Real Heroes Fire Rescue Award from the American Red Cross of Central New York.

In April of this year Lt. Lehmann rescued a disabled teen from a house fire. He forced open a bedroom door, and was able to remove the teen from the burning home.

This is the second year in a row that a member of the Syracuse Fire Department has received this prestigious award. In 2019, Firefighter Joseph Skardinski was honored for rescuing an unconscious man from a burning apartment on South Clinton Street.
