Jason Patrick is a hero, but he doesn't like to think of himself that way.
"My Facebook blew up. All my friends were calling me thanking me, and it's actually....I mean I didn't want to come to this," Patrick said outside of the American Red Cross "Hometown Heroes" celebration. "My friend said 'No, you need to come be recognized.' To me, it's embarrassing. I'm just a guy. I'm just a roofer," says Patrick.
His modesty didn't keep the Red Cross from recognizing Patrick for his disaster relief efforts.
In February, he was traveling to Bonaire from Atlanta during a snow storm that left the city in gridlock, and thousands stranded in their cars for hours.
"It was very hectic. A lot of people were stuck. Didn't really know how to drive in the snow so I had to push a bunch of cars," says Patrick.
