On April 4, 2021, Kyle Brule valiantly pulled a woman to safety from a burning vehicle. While driving home from work on an interstate, Kyle noticed traffic coming to a stop and drivers pulling off on the shoulder. Kyle then approached the incident and noticed an overturned van that was engulfed in flames. As he approached the vehicle, he saw a patient that was still partially trapped in the van, lying waist down in the vehicle. The patient was burning, screaming, and in obvious distress. No attempts were being made to rescue her, and she was not capable of self-extrication, so Kyle ran up and grabbed the patient by her waistline and pulled her to a safe distance. The patient had suffered third-degree burns to fifty percent of her body and partial or first-degree burns to the rest of her body. Kyle remained with the victim and consoled her on the scene for approximately fifteen minutes until Gwinnett Fire (GDFR) MED 21 arrived.
Additionally, Kyle is a safety advocate for his crews. He provided more than 200 safety coaching sessions in 2021, with a ninety percent effectiveness rating, resulting in a thirty percent reduction in accidents and injuries.
