When your job is saving lives, you're never off the clock. Not even on vacation. Just ask an Oswego firefighter who saved 3 lives in North Carolina.

Sean O’Gorman of the Oswego Fire Department just completed swift water rescue training, and it's a good thing he did. It helped him save three girls caught in a rip current off the of coast of Emerald Isle, North Carolina while on a family vacation.

"Using the aggressive swim, forceful crawl stroke he learned in training he was able to reach the girls where their father was unable, even on a surf board," the Oswego Fire Department wrote on Facebook.

Everyone was out of the water and safe by the time Emerald Isle firefighters arrived thanks to O'Gorman.

O'Gorman is our Hometown Hero. If you know someone who deserves to be recognized as a 'Hometown Hero,' email Polly@BigFrog104.com all the details.
