Congratulations to Local 3 1st-year apprentice Devon Brummell who was awarded the IBEW's highest honor, the Lifesaving Award, at the General Membership Meeting on March 11. Back in November, while working for Allan Briteway Electrical Contractors at the Turkish embassy in midtown-east Manhattan, Devon saved a Local 3 brother who started choking during lunch. The incident happened on the same day Devon received his union card. As an apprentice, he is taking classes at the Electrical Industry Training Center, which include CPR and safety training.
Devon addressed the General Membership Meeting last Thursday and thanked Local Union No. 3 and the IBEW for their recognition. “I would've done it for any brother or sister,” Devon said.
