Former Lakefield Resident Receives OPP Commissioners Citation
The quick actions of a former Lakefield man resulted in the saving of another man’s life and the awarding of the OPP Commissioner’s Citation for Bravery and Lifesaving. In January of 2013, Philip Kimball was visiting a home in Lakefield when another man entered into a life threatening distress. Kimball removed the man from danger; kept the man breathing, called for medical assistance and stayed with the victim until emergency personnel arrived. The award was presented to Kimball for his actions, which saved another man’s life.
