Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department officials presented a special Life Saving Award to Taeloire on March 6.
Ravensworth Elementary student Taeloire knows how important it is to listen in class. So when the Fairfax County Fire Department visited with some fire safety lessons, Taeloire not only paid attention, he remembered what he was taught.
When an accidental fire started in his house, Taeloire immediately alerted his mother and made sure she and his baby brother got out of the house safely. His quick response helped to save the lives of his family. Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department officials presented a special Life Saving Award to Taeloire on March 6 for his heroic actions. His third grade classmates witnessed the presentation.
“Taeloire is a kind and bright young man,” says Ravensworth principal Roxanne Salata. “He is a compassionate friend to his classmates, and it’s no surprise that he rose to hero status by acting so fast to save his family from the quickly spreading fire. Everyone at Ravensworth is so proud of Taeloire!”
