VIDEO: Grandma Elsie” can’t stop bragging about the firefighter who changed her life. She’s in her 90’s and said a dramatic life twist came after accidentally setting off her Life Alert pendant. She wears it in case of emergency and one press will alert and dispatch help. The Monroe resident admits she didn’t realize she had activated her pendant when she was attempting to mow her lawn. Snohomish Regional Fire & Rescue showed up and learned that it was a false alarm, but firefighter Brandon Huber felt compelled to help with the yard work. “I have four sons so I told her we would come and take care of her lawn,” Huber said. That’s when Huber started to ask Elsie about the condition of her aging home. “It was in rough shape," Huber said. "Mostly wood and almost no paint to it needed some love."
