Cpt. Jose A. Nochea of the Miami-Dade Fire Department Station 37 is my hero. Not only because of the service he and others provide, but also because he personally saved me. On November 13, 2006 I was involved in a terrible motorcycle accident. I had fractured ribs, a broken right wrist/left knee, and the percentage of blood in my lungs was at a dangerous low. Cpt. Jose A. Nochea was the first to arrive on scene, and kept me alert to await an airlift. Needless to say, I'm great, and I think I owe it in huge part to him. Thank you, Cpt. Jose A. Nochea.
