The eight firefighters recognized were:

  • Probationary Firefighter Christopher Babcock who completed his one-year recruitment period becoming an official full-time firefighter with the department;
  • Lieutenants Michael Strunk, Owen Milks, and John Hering were promoted to Captain;
  • Firefighters Bryan Shambeck, Michael Riedy, and Dane Hazelton were promoted to Lieutenant;
  • And Firefighter Trevin Robinson was promoted to Administrative Officer.
The department implemented two new ranks within its organizational structure, an Administrative Officer and Captain (Shift Commander).  These additional ranks give the department:

  1. The ability to develop mentoring programs in improving future succession planning;
  2. Additional future promotional opportunities for overall growth and retention of personnel;
  3. And, the ability to establish exterior Incident Command 24/7 at the onset of all emergency incidents which provides much safer scene accountability and compliance with Incident Command System laws and standards.
