Capt. Bill Dowling was presented with the Liberty Mutual Firemark Award.
The honor goes to firefighters who represent their communities through courageous and selfless acts.
Dowling lost his legs while fighting a motel fire in May. Four of his fellow firefighters were killed in the blaze.
As a recipient, Dowling is now eligible for a $10,000 donation to his fire station.
