Jennifer Albright, an eight-year member of the IUP Department of Custodial Services, went above and beyond being a good neighbor on Saturday, November 26, when her neighbor’s home on Warren Road, Center Township, caught fire.

Jennifer has been a volunteer firefighter with the Aultman Fire Department for 14 years, so she’s used to helping friends and neighbors when emergency situations occur.

In this case, the fire was right next door. Jennifer pulled the husband from the burning home and saved his life, and her family helped shortly after to get the family away from the house.

Jennifer also responded to the fire call with her fire department.

The home was destroyed, and neighbors are staying with family members.

Many thanks to Jennifer, and to all of our community first responders who sacrifice their personal and family time to help us to stay safe and well.
