Adam Gaudin, center, a former Shelbyville firefighter, was recently awarded the Indianapolis Fire Department Medal of Valor by Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett, left, and IFD Chief Ernest Malonge, right, for his “professionalism, dedication and willingness to risk (his) own life in the face of extreme conditions to save another.” The presentation was made on Jan. 31 during the 28th Annual Indianapolis Fire Department Recognition Banquet at the Indiana Roof Ballroom in downtown Indianapolis.
