Hometown Heroes: First responders to Planned Parenthood attack

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — FOX21 and the American Red Cross are partnering once again to honor some Hometown Heroes – ordinary people who have done something extraordinary for their community or the lives of others.

Today, we’re highlighting our first responder heroes – two men who responded to the Planned Parenthood attack.

They’re paramedics who step up when situations become life-threatening.

Cameron Halverson and Bo Hutchinson weren’t able to tell us exactly what they did that day, but their captain said they showed the same courage and kindness they display every shift.

Halverson and Hutchinson are members of the Tactical Emergency Medical Services, a program founded in Colorado Springs back in 1994. At that time, it was one of the only programs of its kind in the nation.

Hometown Heroes will get their awards March 16 during a dinner at The Broadmoor.
