Annual awards banquet

Klamath County Fire District No. 1 holds an Annual Employee Appreciation Dinner.  This event is an opportunity for the Fire District and the employees to honor one another.  Employees nominate their peers for various awards, prior to a final selection committee reviewing the nominations and picking the winners.  These winners are kept secret until the night of the dinner.  The 2015 Award Winners were:

Firefighter of the Year
Captain Cole VanEssen

Warren Award
Retired Captain Carl Gurske

EMS Recognition Award
Paramedic Jordan Abbott

HazMat Recognition Award
Battalion Chief Toni Brimmer
