Is this well-formed? Hello dear native speakers. Is the following sentence well-formed and natural? In the first hours after the earthquake, some dedicated firefighters were quick enough to get in the falling buildings through escape hatches and saved the lives of many people who were in a dangerous situation. Thanks

'to get into... and save' is slightly better, but otherwise this reads well to me.

Very close to perfect. I'd suggest "get into" for "get in", and change from "saved" to "save". If you want to keep the "saved", then you'd need a comma before the "and".
