SCFD: ”We Appreciate our Volunteers”
—Sal Gullo, District Chief, Sandoval County Fire Department District 4, Placitas
Our Sandoval County Fire Department District 4, Placitas Member Appreciation Banquet 2010 was a wonderful success. We had a great attendance with a mix of our volunteer auxiliary members, active members, our officers and the Sandoval County Fire Department administration staff. The program was full and we managed to get through it all in the short three hours that we shared together on Sunday afternoon. The following is a brief summary of the awards and their recipients:
Service Award Jackets were issued by Jerry Malloy to Kati Goins, Ari Levaux, Terry DeBiase, Peter Rinn, Jim Rowell, Lee Couch, George Dahl, Steve Bailey, Chad Kizer and Fred Rosen.
The Top 10 Responders were Jim Rowell, Nancy Roope, Bud Lolli, George Dahl, Tom Hansen, Chad Kizer, Drew Owens, Jerry Malloy, Sandy Escarcida and Peter Rinn.
Auxiliary Member of the Year was Valerie Forbes.
Rookie of the Year was awarded to Peter Rinn.
EMS Responder of the Year was Sandy Escarcida.
Fire Responder of the Year was awarded to Tom Hansen.
Chief Awards were handed to Chad Kizer (EMS), and to George Dahl (Fire).
The segment that Tom Hansen and George Dahl put together and Dahl presented was more than just fun; it helped us realize that someone is always watching out for others. I wish to extend a thank you to Tom and George for all their hard work.
A hearty thank you goes out to Captain John Wolf and his team that visited with many of the local merchants to gather door prize offerings for our volunteer members.
We volunteer our time throughout the year to respond to our community’s emergencies, as well as attend trainings and various other meetings. The annual banquet is one small way of expressing our gratitude to our dedicated members. Simply stated, thanks goes out to all who support our organization.
