Bus driver Brad Lewter was among the recipients of the City's One Albuquerque Award today. Brad came upon a driver in distress whose Volkswagen was on fire. He calmly put it out with a fire extinguisher and went back on the job. Thanks, Brad!

Today we presented the One Albuquerque Award to 3 deserving Burqueños:
▪️Tom Huling, the general manager at the Crowne Plaza Albuquerque took an elderly out of town stranger into his care when she arrived for the Senior Games disoriented and without any travel partners. He and a group of others helped her find her way around ABQ and get home safely.
▪️ Jennifer Lee saved her co-worker’s life at The Public Library Albuquerque Bernalillo County with quick thinking and a calm reaction when the other employee started choking and Jennifer successfully performed the Heimlich Maneuver.
▪️ Brad Lewter from the City’s ABQ RIDE Department pulled his bus over when he saw flames shoot out of an elderly woman’s vehicle. He pulled over and put the fire out and then some of his passengers helped move the car out of the roadway.

Thank you to each of these outstanding individuals for helping us create a stronger community!
