Dear TMSA Community,

We want to share with you an inspiring story of a TMSA hero.

Triad's Middle Schooler Jamire D. Ricker was home alone on February 25th when he heard a noise. At first, he thought it was coming from the TikTok video he was watching. He quickly realized something bigger was happening.

A fire was burning inside a bedroom in his home, and the noise he heard was the smoke alarm going off.

He looked for a fire extinguisher, but he could not find one. He immediately called 911 and went to each unit in his building to make sure all his neighbors got out safely.

With his quick thinking and bravery, he saved his life and his neighbors'.

Jamire was honored with the Exceptional Civilian Service Award by the Greensboro Fire Department yesterday. TMSA also recognized his heroic, selfless act with a fully sponsored field trip to Carowinds Amusement Park. His entire class enjoyed a pizza party, too!

We are very proud of you, Jamire!
