Honoring 50 years of service
This year we will be honoring fire company members who have achieved 50 years of service since our last ceremony in 2018. Fire companies are asked to submit names of any members who are still actively involved in the fire company in some capacity and have served 50 years, either with their fire company or combined with service to other fire companies. There is no need to resubmit names of those already honored (see list).
