Good job by our guys! They went from a training class to a real world search and rescue seamlessly. I am thankful to see the Dept. recognizing them for what they did. Keep up the good work!!

Just wondering, was a citation bar given (like for the CPR saves)?

No RFD, to my knowledge, does not have any additional decorations.

not today they don’t, BUT there is a committee that has been working on awards and citation bars as you call them. One of the LT. on B shift has been working on that type of project with the Chief. and the word is that one day we will have awards day!

Stay brothers!
