Two police officers and two firefighters from Chicago and the suburbs received high honors Wednesday for being true heroes and saving lives.

The 100 Club of Chicago honored the men with its 2010 Valor Awards.

Chicago firefighter-paramedic Jason Durbin was off-duty last December when he came across a high-rise fire. He ran up 28 floors and saved a woman.

Willow Springs Fire Captain John Deehan saved a woman who jumped into the freezing waters of the Sanitary and Ship Canal last December, even though he can't swim.

Chicago police officer Darren Wright was honored for stopping a suspect who had just shot a teenager.

Berwyn police officer Robert D. Fox was honored for saving two young children last June from possibly being abducted.
