Dynalectric Oregon Employees Help Prevent Potential Suicide -- Receive "Certificate of Merit" From Portland Fire & Rescue
---EMCOR Subsidiary’s Brandon Muir & Toly Pelyukhno Recognized for Selfless Actions at Oregon Health & Science University Campus ---
PORTLAND, OREGON, May 18, 2016 – Dynalectric Oregon employees Brandon Muir and Toly Pelyukhno have been awarded a “Certificate of Merit” by the Portland Fire & Rescue for assisting in the prevention of a potential suicide at the Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) campus.
Dynalectric Oregon, a premier electrical contractor serving the Pacific Northwest, is a subsidiary of EMCOR Group, Inc. (NYSE: EME), a Fortune 500® leader in mechanical and electrical construction, industrial and energy infrastructure, and building services for a diverse range of businesses.
Brandon Muir and Toly Pelyukhno, while working on the campus of their client OHSU, were asked to aid when an individual receiving care at OHSU attempted to jump from a third-story window. While hospital employees struggled to keep the individual from falling, public safety officers on the ground enlisted Mr. Muir and Mr. Pelyukhno, who were undertaking an electrical installation directly below the window, who maneuvered their boom-lift beneath the individual and successfully lowered him to safety.
“Without the quick actions by the OHSU staff, public safety personnel, and the Dynalectric Contractors, the man could have been seriously injured or died from a three-story fall. For their selfless actions Toly Pelyukhno and Brandon Muir are hereby awarded a Certificate of Merit,” stated Erin A. Janssens, Fire Chief, Portland Fire & Rescue.
“We are extremely proud of Toly Pelyukhno and Brandon, Muir” said Randy Wagner, President & CEO, Dynalectric Oregon. “They acted quickly and decisively, and performed what had to be done to come to the aid of an individual in need. Extraordinary circumstances present a true test of our strength of character and values; Toly and Brandon certainly came through with flying colors at OHSU.”
