Fire Fighter of the Year

Each year the Firefighters have an opportunity to submit another's Firefighters name to the awards committee for the nomination of the "Distinguished Firefighter of the Year". This award is handed out to the Firefighter at our annual "spring-fling" appreciation dinner in early February.
