The William Bradford Turner Post #265 awarded Garden City Assistant Fire Chief Joseph Nadolny with a 2013 Law & Order Award Wednesday in recognition of his actions during the 2012 Turkey Trot race.
During the community event, held each year on Thanksgiving Day, a team of volunteer firefighters was assigned to an emergency response crew during the race. Assistant Chief Nadolny was notified of a runner that possibly fell.
He responded and quickly determined the runner was in cardiac arrest. As two civilians administered CPR, Assistant Chief Nadolny set up an Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) and administered a life saving shock to the victim that helped save his life.
Henry Wysocki, the person whose life he saved on that day, presented Assistant Chief Nadolny with the award during Wednesday's ceremony, where he was joined by his wife, parents and a contingent of officers and members of the Garden City Fire Department.
