HOUSTON Van Postell and his friend, Cameron Decker, are two impressive Houstonians who will be working together to save lives.
Both men are reserve deputies with the Harris County Sheriff s Office.
That means they go through all the standard law enforcement training (just like the others) and work for the sheriff s office when they can for free.
Decker is also a med student studying at Ben Taub to be an emergency room doctor. Postell, a trained paramedic, has brought many critically through the doors of Ben Taub s busy ER.
For all the time Decker and Postell devote to public service, they might be called the ultimate volunteers.
But why do they do it?
