They will regularly put their own lives at risk to save another and, too often, are not recognised or thanked for making a difference in someone's life.

Last year ER24 partnered with GoPro South Africa in the form of a sponsorship agreement and the ER24 GoPro Be a Hero Awards was born, to recognise people that have gone above and beyond the call of duty.
Jaeden-Lee Searra (8) received a Young Hero Award from ER24’s Chief Executive Officer, Andrew Boden, after bravely saving his four-year-old brother from drowning.
