Red Cross Accepting First Responder Award Nominations

First Response
I was very honored to receive this award last year, especially knowing how many great men and women serve our community everyday as first responders.

(UPPER SANDUSKY, OH, JANUARY 13, 2014) Nominations for the First Responder of the Year award, presented by the American Red Cross of Wyandot County, are now being accepted. Applications for the First Responder of the Year Award are due by February 10.

The First Responder of the Year Award recognizes a local firefighter, law enforcement officer or emergency medical responder for significant contribution to local first response delivery. Last year’s award was presented to Carey Fire Chief Chad Snyder. Snyder is now a member of the Red Cross Advisory Council in Wyandot County and will be helping choose this year’s winner.

“I was very honored to receive this award last year, especially knowing how many great men and women serve our community everyday as first responders. I’m looking forward to sharing the honor with this year’s recipient and I encourage everyone to nominate a responder they feel is deserving of the award.”

Nomination forms are available at all Fire Departments in the county, at the Wyandot County Sheriff’s Department, Carey and Upper Sandusky Police Departments and from the Red Cross. The Award will be presented at the Red Cross Boots and Badges event on Saturday, March 1 at the Sycamore Community Center.
