Below is the text of the nomination:
Capron Fire & EMS
While off duty, Captain Michael Griffin saved lives when he stopped at a fiery auto accident where a family of four had rolled their SUV. Kicking in the sunroof, Capt. Griffin removed the two children from the back seat. Unfortunately, the families' father and one of the children were killed on impact. Capt. Michael Griffin coordinated fire suppression while shielding the mother from the fire. Once Firefighters and EMS arrived, Capt. Griffin continued to assist in the extrication. He also extended care to the mother, despite suffering burns on his face and body. A certified Enhanced EMT and certified Firefighter, he is the recipient of the Virginia Governor's Award for EMS, Virginia Regional Award for EMS, Virginia Governor's Award for Outstanding EMS Provider, and the Sentera Promise Award. He is a proud husband and father. He has three children and coaches softball in his spare time.

Done! Gotta support my EMS brothers. We're always the red headed stepchild of the fire service (even though in a typical combined fire / EMS service 80% of the calls are EMS).
Battle Plan (n) - a list of things that aren't going to happen if you are attacked.
Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.

You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.
Ego will kill you. Leave it at home.

If you stand up and be counted, from time to time you may get yourself knocked down. But remember this: A man flattened by an opponent can get up again. A man flattened by conformity stays down for good. ~ Thomas J. Watson, Jr.

Used a standby email address so I won't get spammed too much, but he has my vote.
A person is justified in the use of deadly force, if such person reasonably believes deadly force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to such person or a third person.
