Tim Tawater felt compelled to help when he saw smoke coming from a house. He was on his way to a party, but he was a veteran Nashville firefighter and knew he couldn’t just drive by without stopping to help. Tim didn’t know that his actions were being recorded from across the street. Tim was on the scene before the first responders and didn’t find any people inside.
But when he came back out there was a dog was standing by the door. When Tim approached, the dog ran back inside. So, Tim went into the house and grabbed the dog and pulled him to safety. The family was able to find Tim and thank him for saving their dog. Tim said firefighters don’t do their jobs for any other reason but to help other people.
