The Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office is pleased that one of our deputies, Ronald (Ronnie) W. Manning, is recognized as a Carnegie Hero for his heroism in rescuing two parish women from a burning car in July 2017.
Ronnie is a retired firefighter who has been employed with the Sheriff’s Office since July 1, 2008. Ronnie effectively serves as a process server, making certain that all legal documents from the courts and the Clerk of Court office are delivered to the intended recipients.
Sheriff Randy Seal commented. “What a tremendous honor to have one of our own nationally recognized by the Carnegie Hero Fund Commission for his heroic life-saving action on July 14, 2017. Deputy Manning is an humble man who seeks no recognition on his own. It was our pleasure to nominate him for this prestigious award. Congratulations, Ronnie, for a job well done!”
