         WHEREAS, The Senate of the State of Texas is pleased to
  recognize Jon Ferrell and Michael Garcia of Abilene for their
  heroic actions in rescuing the victim of a fire; and
         WHEREAS, On the morning of July 12, 2017, a fire broke out
  in the second-floor apartment of Ashley Hardy and her family;
  civilians Jon Ferrell and Michael Garcia were the first to arrive
  at the scene, and disregarding their own safety, they entered the
  burning apartment; and
         WHEREAS, The two men, without the benefit of firefighting
  equipment, braved smoke and flames to reach Ashley Hardy, who had
  been overcome by the heat and smoke; they successfully removed
  her from the apartment to safety; and
         WHEREAS, The quick thinking and decisive action of these
  men more than likely saved the life of Ashley Hardy, and it is
  truly fitting that they receive special recognition for their
  selfless deed; now, therefore, be it
         RESOLVED, That the Senate of the State of Texas, 85th
  Legislature, 1st Called Session, hereby commend Jon Ferrell and
  Michael Garcia on the courage they demonstrated by rescuing a
  victim in the midst of a dangerous, life-threatening situation;
  and, be it further
         RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution be prepared for
  them as an expression of high regard from the Texas Senate.
