Two Redwood City firefighters and two police officers were honored for their heroism and outstanding service by a local community group, a city official announced.

The Peninsula Council of Lions Club presented police Officer Perry Garcia with the service award at the 46th annual Police and Firefighter Awards Banquet on April 1.

Garcia, a volunteer instructor for the police activities league’s karate program, volunteered more than 2,400 hours and helped mentor over 700 at-risk youth during his 11-year tenure, officials said.

Police Officer Ryan Adler was also nominated for a heroism award for his part in saving the life of a 9-year-old child on April 14, 2010. He responded to a report of a child who was choking, administered the Heimlich maneuver, and restored the child’s breathing.
