Top Driver – Joey Metallo
The Top Ten is awarded to members with points totaled from all fire calls, trainings, meetings, fundraisers, etc. We do not include the fire officers in our Top Ten as they are expected to perform their duties diligently throughout the year.
The following awards are decided upon by the winner’s peers. At the end of the year, members are asked to submit names and reasons why the individual deserves the award. The first award is the Robert E. Dietrich Memorial Award. Bobby unfortunately passed away in 2007 and left a big hole within the Washies family. The Washies was his family and called it his home. He always went above and beyond for the department. Any member within the department is eligible. The second award is the Joseph Beigh Junior Fighter Award. Joey loved working with the younger members in the department and unfortunately lost his life in 2003. This award is presented to a member between the ages of 14-18, who shows him/her self as the future of the department.

Congratulations to all the award winners. We can never thank you enough for your time and effort! It definitely does not go unrecognized.
