Annual Awards Banquet
Thu, Mar 28th, 2019 7:33:00 pm On Saturday March 23rd volunteers from the WVFC and their families celebrated at our annual awards banquet which was held at the Masonic Lodge in Womelsdorf.

2018 was the busiest year in company history with 308 responses as well as the first time eclipsing more than 300 runs. Our total time in service was also a record 303 hours and 16 minutes. Total man hours in service was 2,444 hours and 28 minutes. A total of 36 different volunteers responded to calls averaging 9 personnel per call. Our fire co responded to 18 working structure fires and 4 vehicle accidents with people trapped.

After a catered buffet a year-end review video made by Chief Bob Martin was shown which highlighted the events and incidents throughout 2018.

Awards were then given out to the top 10 responders.
1. Merle Hurst-199
2. Lamar Hurst-191
3. Dave Schaab-181
4. Dale Hurst-179
5. Mike McKeone-165
6. Doug Sigman-134
7. Tony Barbera-112
8. Paul Krick-108
9. Robert Martin-104
10. Derrick Mertz-101

Each year all our members nominate and vote for one of our own as Member of the Year. This year's award was given to Justin Kocher.

Our officers get together annually and select a member who has shown initiative or deserves special recognition from 2018. That award went to Scott Kramer who also serves as our Relief Association treasurer and handles equipment inventory.

Two special awards were given this year. The first went to Bill Moore. Bill has served our fire co for 50 years starting as a firefighter and moving up the ranks to serving as Fire Chief from 1985-1988. Though he doesn't run calls anymore Bill still serves the company as our treasurer.

The second award was given to Hurst Repair and the Hurst brothers as recognition for being instrumental in making themselves available during the day time when manpower is lowest. When other communities in our area and across the United States struggle in having available manpower not only during the day but altogether, our community is very fortunate the Hursts sacrifice both time from their work and home to make sure our apparatus get out. Firefighting can be a family tradition and in this case their father Mervin Hurst served our fire co. as a former Fire Chief from 1990-1992 and another brother Carl served as a driver and Chief Engineer for us as well for numerous years.

Chief Martin was also presented with a token of appreciation by the members of the company. Also recognized were Shannon Kramer who handles our statistics annually and fire police officers Jack Milligan and Dave Schaab who are a tremendous help during our annual fastnacht sales.
