CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -
Five employees with the City of Cincinnati's Emergency Communication Center were honored Tuesday for their response to a collapse at the construction site of the new Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati.
The incident happened at the site in January 2012. Workers were pouring a 60x60 feet bay of concrete when a steel portion of the structure collapsed, causing the concrete to fall about 25 feet. As a result, several workers were taken to nearby hospitals with injuries.
On Tuesday, Donielle Woodall, Karla Williams, Andrew Threatts, Craig Lapasky and Lawrence Arnold were selected for the Gold Ribbon Award.
The award is presented to a 911 center that maintains a near-normal standard of operations for the community after a major man-made event or natural disaster takes place.
"We're incredibly honored to be recognized by our peers as being among the best of the best," said Joel Estes, Emergency Communications Center Director. "The staff handled a really challenging situation like the professionals they are."
The week of April 14-20 is National Public Safety Telecommunications Week, serving as a time when citizens can thank public safety workers who respond to emergency calls during times of crisis.
