May contain: military, military uniform, officer, human, and person

East Lake Fire Rescue (ELFR) named Danny Weber as district’s firefighter of the year for 2015.   Weber also received the Morroni Award as Pinellas County Firefighter of the year.  He received these awards due to his heroic actions while on duty June 12, 2015, when a Tampa Bay woman lost control of her car and drove straight into a pond.  When ELFR arrived on the scene of the accident, Weber jumped into the pond without hesitation and made his way to the victim’s vehicle.  Weber used a glass-breaking tool on the driver’s window and pulled the victim out of the sinking vehicle.
