Fostoria officer honored

FOSTORIA – The Fostoria Police Department honored one of its own Tuesday during the Fostoria Council meeting.

Officer Cory Brian was awarded the “Life Saving Award” by Mayor Eric Keckler and Cpt. Patrick Brooks. This certificate of heroism was awarded for Brian’s response to two calls in which he performed life-saving measures to resuscitate two people. On June 20, 2013, he saved a 2-year-old child and Jan. 24 he saved another citizen with CPR.

Banks said, “the citizens of Fostoria, and this police department are proud to call Officer Brian one of our own.”

Keckler also extended his thanks to Brian.

Also during the meeting, Mary “Betsy” Faeth was reappointed to the Seneca County Board of Health for a three-year term, March 1 to March 1, 2017.
