Tom Whiteway

On December 27, 2018, PC Whiteway was on regular patrol and noticed black smoke in a residential neighborhood. It was quickly learned this was a working house fire in a townhouse. PC Whiteway entered the residence calling out for the occupants but was met with thick smoke and flames that were quickly spreading, he was unable to enter that unit. 

PC Whiteway immediately went to the attached unit and had to break down a door, he then evacuated four occupants who were sleeping and ultimately saved their lives and their home. Unfortunately, one person perished in the fire, but PC Whiteway was able to save 4 other lives. He is clearly a hero!
