News Release, St. Mary’s County Public Information Office
On October 31, 2019 at the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, Annapolis, during the 32nd Annual Meeting of the Local Government Insurance Trust (LGIT), the Chairman of the Board of Trustees, John Miller, presented the Life Saver’s Award to Ms. Amanda Hill and Mr. Charlie Bogie of the St. Mary’s County Metropolitan Commission.
This prestigious award is presented to a person or persons directly responsible for saving a human life. The LGIT Risk Management Committee is responsible for evaluating award nominees and there must be clear evidence to demonstrate that imminent danger existed and that human life would have been lost if the action had not taken place.
The act must go above and beyond the regular duties required by the award nominee’s occupation. According to Mr. George Erichsen, MetCom’s Executive Director, “It was an honor to be present and witness the standing ovation of hundreds of attendees and we, here at MetCom, are extremely proud of both Amanda and Charlie for their quick thinking and exceptional performance in saving the life of a fellow employee.”
