Reporters’ notebook
December 27, 2013, 05:00 AM

Sgt. Shaw Morris of the California Highway Patrol was recognized for his courageous efforts helping four women involved in the deadly May 4 limousine fire on the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge that took the lives of five others.

On Dec. 14, Morris was presented with the CHP Meritorious Achievement Award for bravely performing under emergency conditions. Morris was off-duty when he encountered the limousine fully engulfed in fire. He helped direct the passengers who escaped to a safer location while he called 911.

He returned and repeatedly attempted to open the limousine’s door to free the remaining passengers but was unable to do so.

Coastside ears are safe for now. Due to News Year’s Day 2014 falling on the first Wednesday of January, the county’s Office of Emergency Services has canceled the audible tsunami siren test that otherwise would have taken place. The system is tested at full volume the first Wednesday of each month at 10 a.m. for one minute. The next normal test will be Wednesday, Feb. 5.

The reporters’ notebook is a weekly collection of facts culled from the notebooks of the Daily Journal staff. It appears in the Friday edition.
