A local firefighter was honored this afternoon for life saving efforts.

Jim Likens was given the Fire Fighter of the Year award from the Terre Haute Exchange Club.
   
Likens has been part of the department for the past 19 years.
   
Last year he rescued a person from their apartment during a deadly fire inside the Garfield Towers, and officials say if it wasn't for his bravery they would not have made it out.

"These guys put their life on the line every day. Whenever that bell goes off, these guys go out and do their job and expect nothing in return. When you get something in return, such as this award, I know I can speak for Jim just because Ive received this award myself in the past, that it really means a lot," said Chief Jeff Fisher, Terre Haute Fire Department.

And being an award winning firefighter runs in the family.
   
A few years ago, Likens' brother was also named firefighter of the year.
