Reserve Sergeant Mike Corcoran has received the Silver Star! The Silver Star for Merit is awarded to an employee of the Plainfield Police Department for exceptional meritorious service or outstanding heroism during the normal course of duty. On 8/4/2017 Plainfield officers were notified of a building fire at the Budget Inn/6023 Gateway Dr. Several officers responded to assist the Plainfield Fire Department. One of the officers was Sergeant Mike Corcoran and he was the first officer on scene. When he arrived on scene he located the fire, which was on the second floor. After Sgt. Corcoran discovered where the fire was he immediately went upstairs and began evacuating the occupants of each room. In the process of evacuating sleeping occupants, Sgt. Corcoran continued to get closer to the ’Hot Zone’ in the attempt to evacuate people. He entered in several smoked filled rooms and he was able to lead people out, and in the process, he saved people’s lives. He entered the hotel rooms, putting his life and health at risk. After he was able to get people evacuated, he had to be seen by the EMT’s for smoke inhalation. Due to Sergeant Corcoran’s actions on that night, the lives of many may have been saved due to his quick actions. Even though there was a great amount of fire in the room, he continued to evacuate people, risking his own life and health. His actions that night reflect highly upon himself as an officer, the Plainfield Police Department, and the Town of Plainfield. Congratulations Sgt. Corcoran for your selfless actions on that day!
