VIDEO: Six Davenport first responders were recognized for going above and beyond the call of duty. Fire Lieutenant Justin Cheek, Engineer Adam Larnar, and Firefighter Jim Laban received Firefighters of the Year for saving a drowning man from the Mississippi River back in July. The three say it was in the middle of the night, so they couldn't see anything without a strobe light. They searched and luckily found the man by spotting his face surface the water. "It's the best job in the world. I feel very fortunate I was able to find this career path. It's something I really love," says Engineer Larnar. Larnar was driving the rescue boat that night.
