On July 8, 2017, David helped rescue 62 children and staff members trapped at Circle V Ranch Camp by the Whittier Fire in Santa Barbara, CA.

“David’s heroic actions in the face of grave danger displayed exceptional character, selflessness, and sound judgement,” Perdue said. “His story of heroism is just one of many exhibited by the dedicated men and women of the United States Forest Service, who risk their lives to protect lives and property. I am grateful that President Trump is recognizing David and the excellent work of the Forest Service.”
