Station 1 Participation- 3rd place this year is Nick Bartz. Nick is our full time Technician in the afternoon and a paid on call guy nights and weekends.

Station 2 Participation winner goes to Cory Haskamp this year. Cory has been on the team for 2 years and has championed this prestigeous award for both of them! Cory was also recognized this year for having perfect attendance at our monthly meetings and training events and thus, easily earned this engraved axe. Cory is joined at home by his wife and a wealth of animals around their hobby farm in Bradford Township. Cory works for Graco Inc. during the day.
Station 3 Participaton winner goes to Marc Volk this year. Marc is our Captain besides wearing several other hats including front office guru at our annual Rodeo fundraiser, he is a fire department relief association wiz and a recipient of perfect meeting and training attendance awards this year.
