Tonio WynnManager, Dining Room, Covenant Living of the Great Lakes
An alarm was going on in a resident's apartment and the neighbor smelled smoke. The resident's door was locked and he was not answering. While we were waiting for a master key, Tonio ran outside and climbed through the window into the apartment which was filled with smoke from the sugar & water mixture burning on the stove. He was able to remove the gentleman more quickly than we could get a key. Wonderful job, Tonio! Thanks for running so fast and thinking so quickly!
