Firefighters recognized for their service, valor

THOMASVILLE — During a recent Thomasville City Council meeting, Fire Chief Chris Bowman recognized firefighters who showed exemplary character, work ethic and commitment to service during 2013.

 “It is truly important that we take the time to recognize the exceptional individuals within our Fire Department for the difference they make within our community,” Bowman said. “These individuals have raised the entire department up by challenging them to improve and setting an example of both leadership and humility.”

 Firefighter Corey Thompson was recognized as Thomasville Fire Rescue Firefighter of the Year. To be selected as Firefighter of the Year, the individual must display a commitment to his profession, organization and community.

 “This award exemplifies a high degree of motivation and leadership skills to his/her team or unit, the ability to be an effective team player, with superior job knowledge and personal accomplishments,” said Bowman.

 For dedication to his profession and leadership on and off duty, Assistant Fire Chief Mark Sealy was recognized as the Officer of the Year. The award represents a high degree of leadership skills, superior job knowledge and personal achievement.

 Sealy, Lt. Bill Sangster, Lt. Lennon Jamison, Engineer Mike Mann and Firefighter Jon Conner each were presented with the Thomasville Fire Rescue Life Saving Silver Medal for taking actions directly responsible for saving a life.

 “Though we have pointed out the achievements of these individuals, I would like to recognize everyone within Thomasville Fire Rescue for the selfless work they do in keeping our community safe,” Bowman said.
