Quincy Police Department Serves With Pride and Dignity

Heroes are men and women who go out of their way to save lives. Here is an example.

Officers from the QPD responded to a report of a structure fire at 1330 N. 8th in Quincy just before 11 p.m., Wednesday, March 27. The caller reported she was inside the upstairs apartment with her boyfriend and 9 month old child.

Their only exit, an upstairs back porch, was blocked by the fire. Officers and supervisors from QPD arrived on the scene and found the back upper porch was fully engulfed in flames. The family was trapped. A supervisor from QPD stayed by the window, speaking with the family to keep them calm. An officer quickly went to the rear of the property and located a ladder and carried it to the window area. Once the ladder was in place, the QPD supervisor climbed up to the family and secured the 9-month old child and carried the baby to safety. The adults were able to then climb down to safety. Three people were saved last night.

Heroes did save lives. Thank you, Quincy Police Department and Quincy Fire Department!
