Nine firefighters with Halton Hills Fire Protection and Prevention Services were recognized for 25 years of service by the Fire Marshal's Office of Ontario recently. The local firefighters were among 75 from across the province to receive The Fire Services Long Service Medal from Ontario Fire Marshal Bernard Moyle in Markham. Recipients were: · Captain Doug Andrews · Captain Doug Hewitt · Captain Steve McKnight · Acting Captain Doug Ferguson · Safety Specialist Bruce Lewis · Safety Officer John Pickett · Captain David Ford · Captain Bill McGilloway · Firefighter Lyle Prueter The medal, first awarded in 1971, is an expression of public appreciation for the dedication and hard work of Ontario firefighters. It is officially recognized by the Province. Spouses of the firefighters were also formally recognized by the Fire Marshal and were presented with the Fire Services Companion Brooch to recognize the sacrifices made by spouses of firefighters who frequently watch them respond to fire at unusual hours and under trying conditions.
