CVFD members, loved ones and several local fire chiefs gathered recently to celebrate the hard work and achievements of the department during 2017. The annual banquet serves as a way to say Thank You to all of the members that make the CVFD such a great community organization.
Highlights from the banquet included five long standing members being awarded Life Memberships, and recognizing firefighters for specific achievements. Among those were Volunteer Firefighter James Phillips, who completed an impressive 503 hours of training throughout the year. Volunteer of the Year was awarded to Firefighter Michael Woodard, and the William K. Piddington Firefighter of the Year was awarded to Firefighter Trever Tilley. This was Trever’s second time winning this award.
In 2017, the members logged more than 5,700 hours of training and answered 724 calls for service. As our slogan says, we are Neighbors Helping Neighbors!
