Chongqing- There is a group of people who are brave, hard-working, dedicated to their jobs, and contribute to the economic and social construction of Chongqing, and safeguard the city in obscurity.

Ordinary deeds but extraordinary workers, a total of 497 model workers, and advanced workers were commended in Chongqing on October 9.

Strong sense of social responsibility

"Since 1998, I have been strongly 'tied' to water rescue work," said Ma Jianhui, a 41-year-old member of the Communist Party of China, as well as an assistant to the stationmaster of the Taipingmen Station of the Water Detachment at the Chongqing Fire and Rescue Corps, who was commended as one of the 497 model workers and advanced workers.

As a guide for more than 1,000 water rescue recruits, Ma has been successively involved in programs and services related to disaster relief, including the Baige barrier lake in Tibet and the catastrophic flood of the Yangtze River No. 5, as well as handled a series of ship fires, including Jiangyu 114, Hainei No. 2 and Changzhou No. 6.

Transfer over 300 trapped people

Last August, Chongqing suffered a catastrophic flood once in a century. The water level of the Yangtze River soared, and many people were trapped at home.

Ma described, there were lots of voltage transformers along the Changbin Road at the time, where the electricity had not been cut off.

"If you rush to rescue, you may get an electric shock if you are not careful," said Ma.

In this regard, he took the lead in driving the assault boat and loaded the power supply department personnel to cut off the power in time, opening up a safe passage for the teammates to rescue the masses. Ma led the party member commando team to transfer over 300 trapped people more than 50 hours later.

Meanwhile, in the post-disaster clean-up, Ma had removed more than 40 cubic meters of silt and over 10 tons of garbage. He helped the residents along the river restore production and life order and thereby gained warm praise from the people.

"During the rescue, the team members and I also felt scared," said Ma. "But in the rescue field, time is life, and there is no time to think more."

"Since I have chosen this profession, I have the responsibility to rescue people in danger," continued Ma. "The more dangerous the place, the more we need to come forward to serve for the people."

Ordinary posts can contribute to society

"On the road of life, everyone is writing their own history with their own footprints," said Li Yuming, a 59-year-old taxi driver, who was also commended as a model and advanced worker. "I also hope that I can dedicate my enthusiasm and contribute to society in an ordinary post."

During the COVID-19 pandemic last year, Li voluntarily requested to be the captain of the emergency fleet of Tianzi Taxi Car Company at Wanzhou District.

At the risk of being infected at any time, Li drove medical staff who had difficulty traveling out to collect specimens and commute. 

While leading 20 team members to overcome the shortage of epidemic prevention materials, Li and his team were standing by, providing 24 hours services to medical staff on the front line, no matter the weather conditions.

In this extraordinary battle against the COVID-19, Li and his team have transported more than 700 front-line medical personals, ensuring their safe travel every day.
