A Deserving Woman Receives Fire Fighter of the Year Award
- By Tammy Johnston
Lois Keenan, Firefighter from River Falls Fire Department, Marietta, SC, received the coveted Firefighter of the Year award from her Fire Chief, David Emory, at their Christmas Firefighter Dinner this past Saturday evening. She is only the second woman in the 26-year history of the fire department to receive this prestigious award.
She recounts the moment that led up to the award. “I was not sure it was me. When they called my name, I was beside myself. I had tears in my eyes, and I could not stop grinning. I danced up to David Emory and thanked him, “So many other firefighters deserve this award more than me. I felt honored and proud that I was chosen to have received this award.”
