On Monday morning, July 5, 2004 my family and I were traveling on I 77 south of Brandon, and had a flat tire. Officer Gomez stopped and helped my husband change the tire. Without her we would have been in real trouble. My husband was unfamiliar with getting the jack to work with his new truck and we couldn't get AAA to understand where we were.

Office Gomez took charge and had us back on the road within 30 minutes. She also gave us directions to the nearest tire repair.

She was going southbound when she spotted us with the flat. But before getting to us she saw an older couple with a stalled vehicle. The temperature was raging and she gave them first priority. One of them had some health problems. She used good judgement in handling their emergency first.

Thank goodness for officers like Ms. Gomez. She was a lifesaver for many that day!!!!!!!!!!
