Jerk HutTry as he might, Kurtis could not
break the glass with his hammer.

Leslie who was starting to become
more alert.

quarters, oxtail and pork steak. Sides include
coconut red beans and rice and potato salad.

ent, " Kurtis says. " I couldn't just stand there as the fire got
worse. "
Working from the window down, Kurtis used his hammer
to beat back the part of the truck jamming the door
little by little, giving himself enough leverage to use the
claw of the hammer to try and pry it open. As he worked
down the door, the men inside were pushing to unlatch it.
" The smoke was getting worse and worse, " he says. " At
that point both the passenger and driver were beating on
the door. "

Eventually Kurtis' quick thinking paid off as the door
was able to be forced open and the men escaped just
before the truck was fully covered in flame. First responders
arrived shortly after. " I really believe it was a matter of

" My guy in front with me was
telling me what was going on and it
just kind of hit me. From the inside
of the cab there wasn't anything
we could do. I squeezed that door
handle so tight, my muscles are
still tired today, " Leslie says one
week after the accident.
" I had to try something differAUG
seconds, "
Kurtis says. " The truck
was engulfed shortly thereafter. "
Kurtis says that he and his coworkers
are encouraged to lend a
helping hand when they are out in
their communities, especially the
rural areas cooperatives tend to
serve the most.
" We're part of the community, "
he says. " We're always around,
going up and down these roads
that not a lot of people drive on. If
there's a vehicle on some of these
rural roads, it's usually either the
landowner or the co-op. "
Kurtis said the extensive training
cooperative employees receive
played a big role in rescuing the
men. " My instincts and training just kicked in, " he says.
" I'm trained just like the lineworkers. We have fire extinguisher
training in our office. That wasn't the first time I
pulled the pin on one of those.
" It probably only lasted two minutes or so, but it sure
felt longer, " he says. " I'm just thankful for how it worked
out. God put me in the right place and gave me the right
tools to do the best I could. I couldn't have done that by
myself. "

Leslie unequivocally credits Kurtis for him and his coworker
surviving that day.
" Kurtis is a hero. No two ways about it, " he says. " He
acted in a hero's fashion. He just got out of his truck and
started doing stuff. Incredible. He saved two lives that day. "
