Ron Wertz Awarded Emergency Medical Technician Gold Medal
On January 16, 2014, VFW Post 1040 Commander, Martin Spani, awarded the Emergency Medical Technician Gold Medal Award to South Bay Fire’s long-time volunteer Ronald A. Wertz. Ron received this award for giving 34 tireless years of service to the Fire department. During his tenure with the Department he held the position of Firefighter/EMT, level One Firefighter, Shift Captain and Incident Command CPR instructor. Ron Wertz is outstanding in his field, well representing the South bay Fire Department and is extremely deserving of the award!
Recently 12 members from South Bay signed up to compete in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Scott Firefighter Stairclimb in Seattle that takes place on Sunday, March 9, 2014. Although this is a competition to see who can race to the top of the Columbia Tower the fastest in all of their fire protection gear, the real competition is fundraising to help find a cure for blood cancers. Since South Bay started sending teams to the event in 2006 we have been the highest fundraising team in Thurston County and have raised nearly $60,000 over the last 7 years. If you are interested in seeing who from South Bay is competing or if you want to make a tax deductible donation please visit the team’s website @ www.llswa.org/goto/SBFD8
