Dana Donahue, Tucson

(Nominated by Adam C. Dimas)
Centennial Hall, University of Arizona
July 8, 2011

Dana Donahue is a Captain Paramedic and an arson investigator with the Phoenix Fire Dept.  Dana has worked for Phoenix for approximately 22 years and is an exceptional employee. I believe it was in November of last year Dana was headed home to Camp Verde from a long shift at the fire house when, she came upon a single vehicle rollover just north of Black Canyon city on I17. Dana pulled over to assist the Department of Public Safety with this call and soon took command of the emergency where multiple units had responded with just her cell phone and supplies she had on hand. Dana ran into a family member of one of the victims who passed away and explained to them what had happened and I believe brought closure to this incident for this family member.
