The AMAZING 911 operator who helped Iman Shumpert deliver his baby last week is a STUD who will "definitely" be nominated for service awards ... his boss tells TMZ Sports.
We spoke with Cleveland EMS Headquarters chief David Miller who wouldn't reveal the ID of the heroic 911 operator -- but told us, "He's always been a really good employee."
So good ... that Miller says the operator will "definitely be nominated" for several prestigious awards for emergency workers which are announced at a ceremony during EMS Week in Cleveland in May.
Miller says everyone was impressed with the cool, calm and collective way the operator handled himself during the call with Shumpert -- but adds, "We aren't surprised at all."
Miller says the guy has always been popular around the office ... "but even more so this week."
