Medal of Merit Recipients

Several First Responders Receive Medal of Merit

The Medal of Merit recognizes first responders who perform acts of intelligent thinking and bravery while saving or attempting to save the lives of others. Several CarlisleMedal of Merit Ceremony first responders were honored at the March Borough Council Meeting with the Medal of Merit for their actions during a fire on A Street in September 2022.

Matthew Boyce of Carlisle Fire & Rescue, Corporal Timothy Mayer of the Carlisle Borough Police Department, and Eric Bender and Ethan Derliunas of the Carlisle Barracks Fire Company received the Medal of Merit for their work rescuing a man and his young son from the fire. An unidentified citizen also provided valuable assistance in the rescue operation. Carlisle Fire Chief Randy O'Donnell hopes this person sees this and comes forward so they can be honored as well.

Thank you to our Medal of Merit recipients for your heroic actions!
