On the morning of Sept. 26, Rio Blanco County employees were traveling to Rangely on Hwy. 64, when their ordinary day turned them into heroes. They stopped to assist a man in a medical emergency by giving him CPR and assuring safety to those giving aid. Pictured: Deputy Max Becker, Matt Litzelman, Jessica Perkins, Katherine Marie Smith and Sheriff Anthony Mazzola. Litzelman, Perkins and Smith received awards from the Sheriff’s Office on Tuesday.
