Councilor Gilbert and the Tulsa City Council honored Officer Clayton Hicks with a proclamation at Thursday's meeting for his heroic efforts to save victims of a fiery collision.
On Feb. 8, Officer Hicks arrived at the scene of a car engulfed in flames and moved swiftly to drag the remaining occupant of the vehicle out of the burning wreckage.
Officer Hicks and his fellow responders recognized the danger of an unstable power line near the accident and moved four additional persons to a safe location seconds before the live power line fell to the ground.
The City Council features adoptable pets at the first regular Council meeting of each month to raise awareness about animals available for adoption at the city's animal shelter.
This month's pet is Jackson, a four-year-old neutered Shih Tzu.
If you are interested in adopting Jackson, or any of the wonderful animals at City of Tulsa Animal Welfare, call 918-596-8000.
*UPDATE: Jackson has been adopted! But you can stop by the shelter at 3031 N. Erie Ave. to view all the animals still available for adoption or visit PetHarbor.com.
PetHarbor.com is a real time listing of animals in the shelter and is updated hourly. Just type in "Tulsa" or your zip code and click "Adopt a Pet" to search. Then check the City of Tulsa Animal Welfare shleter list box and select "Use this shelter list."
You can then search for all dogs, cats and others, or search by breed, gender, age, size, and color. You can also select "Register your Breed Interest" and receive an email when matching animals arrive at the shelter.
