It was with unanimous agreement that these officers should receive the Mason City Police Department Life Saving Medal as recognition. An award presentation is being planned for the next city council meeting on December 21, 2010, in addition this information has been forwarded to the Iowa State Department of Public Safety for consideration of the Sullivan Brothers Award of Valor.
