A group of Lumby and District Firefighters were awarded gold pins from the firefighting equipment manufacturer, Holmatro, for their outstanding response to a complex call. In July, a crew of Lumby and District Firefighters responded to a scene in which a semi-truck had rolled over on the highway. The team had to work quickly and in a coordinated fashion to free the driver from the wreck. Thankfully, the driver survived the accident.
“Each member of the crew demonstrated their exemplary professionalism at the scene. Every role is important to make sure the best result is achieved, and I am proud of our members, said Tony Clayton, Fire Chief with Lumby and District Fire Hall.
Holmatro president, Kyle Smith, said in a letter to the fire hall, “We at Holmatro would like to take this opportunity to personally recognize your life-saving actions. Holmatro is proud to present you with the enclosed “Gold Pin” award and certificate. This “Holmatro Gold Pin Award” recognizes your outstanding performance, dedication and commitment to your department and the community you serve.”
