EAST LAKE - East Lake Fire Rescue is proud to name Danny Weber as our district’s firefighter of the year, 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.

A witness called 911 and within minutes, East Lake Fire Rescue arrived on the scene of the accident. Without hesitation, Weber jumped into the pond 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.
