CCFR honors responders during annual banquet

Capital City Fire/Rescue hosted its 2022 awards banquet earlier this month as a way of recognizing responders for their outstanding work within the Juneau community.

CCFR Chief Rich Etheridge said the annual awards are an important part of the fire department’s culture.

“The nominations all come from their peers and it’s a chance to recognize those responders that stood out from the crowd,” Etheridge said. “There are so many people that do amazing things in our community it’s hard to select just a few of them to recognize. The department and our community are very grateful that we have such amazing people willing to serve in this capacity.”

This year’s following recipients were:

Anne Wilcock – Emery Valentine Leadership Award

Scott Reid – Chiefs Award of Excellence

Ella Piatt- Firefighter of the Year

Tonya Kurtz – Dispatcher of the Year

Andrew Wheeler – EMS Provider of the Year

Noe Hernandez – Community Health Provider of the Year

Shale Palmer – Instructor of the Year

Peter Boyd- George Reifenstein Special Teams Responder of the Year

Sadie Inman – Rookie of the Year

Boyd, who is a Volunteer firefighter and EMT, said it was both an honor to receive the award but also an honor to work alongside his fellow volunteers.

“It was an honor to get the award and it was all with the help and dedication of fellow volunteers, CCFR career staff and leadership,” Boyd said .“They deserve this award more than I.”
