Silver City Fire Captain Gabriel Gutierrez was honored Friday by Gov. Susana Martinez for his outstanding efforts as incident commander for the Quail Ridge Fire, which ultimately destroyed 13 homes in the Silver Acres neighborhood in March of this year.
Martinez presented Gutierrez with the Governor's Outstanding New Mexico Public Service Award in a small, casual ceremony with Gutierrez's family and friends present.
"Capt. Gutierrez made critical decisions that saved lives," Martinez said. "The damage from the fire was tragic, but without Capt. Gutierrez's outstanding work, we know that it could have been much worse. I join the people of the Silver City area in thanking him for his exceptional leadership as incident commander. Capt. Gutierrez is a true example of a public servant who has gone above and beyond the call of duty. I admire your courage and I am grateful to you, Be safe in the next fire you fight."
