Chris Kampela (2)

I nominate Chris Kampela for the 2018 Police Hero of the Year award. He - along with his fellow officers Matt Sombrutski, Ryan Krupa, Dan Irwin, and Rick Popowich - risked his life when the group of officers ran into a residence filled with carbon monoxide fumes. 

He helped remove the residents from the home, and saved their lives. As a result, all the officers were sent to the Emergency ward to be tested for carbon monoxide poisoning. I feel that Chris Kampela’s selfless act, along with his fellow officers, deserve recognition for this act of heroism.
