SEMINOLE – Two members of a Pinellas County Utilities field services crew saved a man’s life in Seminole on Friday (May 29).

A witness who reported the incident to Pinellas County told staff, “We are grateful to Brandon and Raymond for having the courage and compassion to see someone in need and taking immediate action to assist them.” 

Those sentiments were echoed by Utilities Director Megan Ross, who said, “I couldn’t be more proud of the quick thinking and heroic actions of Brandon and Raymond! These heroes represent the epitome of our passionate and engaged, safety-focused workforce.”
