Norristown Municipal Council is honoring two Norristown firefighters tonight at their regular meeting – Norristown Fire Department Assistant Chief David Keeley and Firefighter Robert Myers. Keely and Myers were instrumental in the high-angle, confined-space rescue of a worker trapped in a water tower in Audubon on Dec. 5.
Keeley and another rescue worker, Joe Dishler, manned the rig while Myers rappelled down the inside of the 100-foot tower to free the worker caught in his own rigging 60 feet up. Both Keeley and Myers will be awarded the medal of valor at tonight's meeting.
