Rescue from a Housefire in Donegal
On 23rd October, 2012 at approximately 4.30 p.m., Gardai from Donegal Town responded to a call about a house fire. On arrival at the scene, flames had started to break through the upper end of the house, with smoke emerging from under the roof. The Gardaí were told of the possibility of there being a woman still in the house. It eventually became apparent that there was someone in the lower bedroom to the left of the front door. Garda Alan Gallagher entered the house via a window and, having to cope with a considerable amount of smoke, carried out the sole occupant.
There is no doubt, but for the courageous actions of Garda Alan Gallagher that the incident may have resulted in loss of life. Garda Gallagher displayed considerable courage in the actions he took. Without his swift actions the woman concerned may well have perished.
For his efforts
Garda Alan Gallagher is awarded a Bronze Medal and Certificate of Bravery.
