Several area emergency responders have been honored for their heroic efforts.
Bryan police Sergeant Jeff Peters received accolades at the 100 Club of Houston's 53rd Heroes Award Program. While off-duty, Peters rescued a man from a burning vehicle. The driver had swerved off the road and the vehicle had partially flipped, trapping the man inside.
