Firefighter of the Year Award Recipients List (2007)

Medal of Honor

Boston Fire Department

Firefighter/Andrew Lee

On February 10, 2007, the Boston Fire Department responded to Box 2192 for a building fire. Upon arrival, Engine 24 reported smoke showing and began advancing an attack line to the 4 th floor. Firefighter Andrew Lee was advised that children were trapped in the apartment. While advancing the line, he heard them crying for help; he located two children, gave the line to another firefighter and rescued them, passing them to other members operating behind them.

Moving further into the apartment where the fire was located, Firefighter Lee advanced beyond the room on fire and found an unconscious infant in the bedroom. He rescued the infant, removed the child to the second floor, passed this third child to other members and returned to the fire floor to continue operations.

Brockton Fire Department

Lieutenant Kevin Galligan

The Brockton Fire Department responded at dawn on July 6, 2006 to a four-alarm fire in a 3-story wood framed residential building, which resulted in numerous injuries and multiple rescues under extreme and deteriorating conditions.

Lieutenant Kevin Galligan, rescued an infant over a ladder, entered the 3 rd floor apartment under heavy smoke and heat conditions and then assisted the mother of the infant onto a 35-foot ground ladder. He re-entered the apartment, found and dragged a third unconscious occupant to the window for removal to Tower 2 and re-entered the well-involved apartment again to locate and drag a fourth victim to the window to await rescue.

These rescues were made under extreme fire conditions, through the teamwork with his lieutenant, Daniel Santry, and his fellow firefighters. Lieutenant Kevin Galligan acted with total disregard for his personal safety, under heavy smoke and fire conditions, made multiple entries into these extreme conditions, exhausted his air supply, and successfully rescued four victims, all of whom remain alive today.

Medal of Valor
Auburn Fire Department

FF/Paramedic Aaron D. Reed

On August 14, 2007, while off-duty, Firefighter/ Paramedic Aaron D. Reed, of the Auburn Fire Department observed a motor vehicle crash in the City of Worcester, where an SUV rolled down an embankment, came to rest on its roof and caught fire. The occupant of the vehicle was unconscious and trapped inside the vehicle. FF/Paramedic Reed cut his hands as he jumped over a fence to reach the vehicle where he broke out the rear window and crawled inside the burning car, suffering additional cuts to his hands and legs due to broken glass. FF Reed experienced great difficulty releasing the seatbelt mechanism due to the upside down position of the vehicle. When he placed himself under the unconscious victim and pushed up on the man's weight, the tension was removed from the seatbelt and FF Reed suddenly found himself pinned to the vehicle's ceiling by the unconscious victim. With great effort he wiggled himself out from under the victim and then dragged the victim back through the rear window, and pulled him from the burning vehicle. Passers-by helped to move the victim to safe ground and FF/Paramedic Reed rendered medical aid to the victim until the arrival of additional paramedics from Worcester EMS.

Brockton Fire Department

Lt. Daniel Santry
Firefighter George Eonas

On July 6, 2006 at 0545 hours, the Brockton Fire Department responded to a fully occupied three-story wood frame residential dwelling. Upon arrival, companies found heavy, overlapping fire from the first floor to the roof, with seven victims with various injuries from jumping from the second floor to escape the fire.

While sizing up the building Lt. Daniel Santry, came upon a woman on the 3 rd floor holding an infant outside a window screaming for help. Lieutenant Santry helped to raise a 35-foot ground ladder, ascended the ladder with Firefighter Kevin Galligan, who took the infant and passed her to Lt. Santry.

Lt. Santry, with Firefighter Galligan, then climbed the ladder to the 3 rd floor again and assisted the mother of the infant onto the ladder and down to the ground; after FF Galligan found a third victim, he dragged the victim to Lt. Santry who removed the victim to the waiting crew on Tower 2. Again entering the building, FF Galligan dragged a fourth victim to the window and Lt. Santry. Unable to continue the rescue as both men were now out of air they exited through the window while FF George Eonas ascended the ladder to the 3 rd floor. He entered the window and stayed with the victim until Tower 2 was raised again, where he assisted in the removal of the fourth victim, performing CPR while the Tower was lowered to the ground.

Melrose Fire Department

FF Neil Sullivan

On August 6, 2005, Firefighter Neil Sullivan was injured in a horrific fire ground incident while fighting a 3-alarm fire on Everett Street in Melrose. Despite losing his leg as a result of the injury, FF Sullivan has shown an indomitable spirit and attitude in overcoming this injury, and has helped members of the department cope with it as well. He serves as a role model for overcoming adversity. His family and the citizens of Melrose look to Neil as a source of great pride

Plymouth Fire Department

Lieutenant Montgomery Gray
Lieutenant Gregory Kane
FF Michael Morrill

On December 18, 2006, Stations 1, 2 & 7 of the Plymouth Fire Department responded to a 3-story residential fire with the Police Department on the scene and law enforcement activity taking place. Upon arrival, crews encountered heavy fire on the first floor extending upward to the second floor. In spite of the fire, the owner and occupant of the building was on the second floor taunting police officers from a second floor window. As suppression activities commenced, the occupant was next seen on the third floor and, while firefighters were raising the ladder to attempt a rescue, the occupant threw objects at them and several times pushed the ladder away from the building. The victim then disappeared and fire crews smashed the window with the ladder to gain entry.

Lt. Gregory Kane and FF Mike Morrill climbed the ladder to the 3 rd floor, entered the window and using a thermal imaging camera located the now unconscious victim in the heavy smoke. He was passed through the window to Lt. Monty Gray, who was waiting on the ladder that was now enveloped by overlapping fire from the second floor. Lt. Gray descended the ladder through the fire with the victim, assisted by Battalion Chief Stanley Elderidge, to paramedics on the ground.

Watertown Fire Department

FF Thomas Thibaut

On February 27, 2007, the Watertown Fire Department responded to a box alarm struck for a reported house fire. Upon arrival the Deputy Chief and his aide, Firefighter Thomas V. Thibaut, were advised that a victim was still inside the building. Without time to don his protective clothing or self-contained breathing apparatus, FF Thibaut was hoisted through a first floor window by police officers, entering a room heavily charged with smoke. As conditions worsened and became close to untenable with zero visibility, FF Thibaut was able to locate a 52-year-old unconscious male, move him to the window and pass him to police and firefighters outside. The victim was transported to the hospital where he was revived and discharged one week later.

Worcester Fire Department

Lt. Mark Chestna

On July 11, 2007, Lt. Chestna and the crew of Engine Company 6 were first due to a fully involved basement fire with extension of heavy fire to the first floor. While attacking the main body of fire with an inch and three quarter (1 ¾") line and darkening down the fire in the basement Lt. Chestna and his crew felt a sudden increase in heat rising from the floor of the basement, later determined to be due to a leaking fuel container. As Lt. Chestna and his crew were retreating from the basement, a large volume of fire erupted blowing the #3 man on the line out of the basement and setting him on fire. Lt. Chestna found his way up the stairs and realized that the nozzle man, FF Ronayne was still trapped in the basement. Lt. Chestna, with no regard for his own personal safety, re-entered the basement through the fire and assisted the nozzle man from the basement. At this point both firefighters were on fire and were extinguished by a back-up line. Despite suffering 1 st and 2nd degree burns, Lt. Chestna successfully saved the life of his nozzle man.

Community Service Award

Holden Fire Department

Lt. Michael Rosen

For the past 7 years, Lieutenant Michael Rosen has run the Holden Fire Department's Explorer Post program, which is an integral part of the fire department and has been a major recruiting tool. The Explorer program is open to individuals from area towns and currently has 16 members between the ages of 16 and 21. As leader of the Explorer Post, Lieutenant Rosen holds meetings once a week on Thursdays. With the assistance of ten adult volunteers, Lieutenant Rosen teaches Explorer members' basic firefighter and first responder skills. Just as importantly, Lieutenant Rosen instills in each member, a sense of responsibility, dedication, cooperation, discipline, and teamwork. Thanks in large part to the lessons learned within the Explorer Post program, many youths with difficulties in school, have become better students because of the experience and life lessons they learn within the Explorer Program. Graduates of the Holden Fire Department Explorer Program have gone on to work for other fire departments including: Concord, Sudbury, Southborough, Centerville-Osterville, Leicester, United States Marine Corp Fire, Washington DC and New York City.

Individual Meritorious Conduct Award Recipients

Boston Fire Department

Lt. Michael Aylward

On Saturday, November 19, 2006, at 0758 hours, Box 3223 was struck for a building fire at 33 Monsignor Lydon Way in Dorchester. With smoke showing upon arrival, Lieutenant Michael Aylward of Ladder 6 and Firefighter John MacDougall of Ladder 6 entered the building and made their way to the second floor where they donned their masks and began to move to the third floor.

After gaining entrance and under heavy smoke conditions, Lieutenant Aylward heard a woman's voice. He then proceeded into the apartment, passing the room on fire, and located a woman in a rear bedroom. Lieutenant Aylward quickly removed his face piece and placed it on the woman while moving her to the front of the apartment. With the assistance of Firefighter MacDougall, Lieutenant Aylward carried the woman to safety.

Firefighter Joseph Bacchi

On September 9, 2006, at 2300 hours, Box 211 was struck for a building fire at 1855 Washington Street in District 5. Upon arrival, Firefighter Joseph Bacchi, immediately ascended to the 4 th floor where he found a very heavy smoke condition in the hallways. As Firefighter Bacchi surveyed the scene, he encountered several confused, elderly occupants who had left their apartments, including one woman who was suffering from the effects of smoke inhalation. In response, Firefighter Bacchi quickly removed his personal face piece and placed it on the elderly woman's face and evacuated her and 2 additional victims to safety in a nearby stairwell.

Group Meritorious Conduct Award Recipients

Brockton Fire Department

Tower Company 2
Firefighter James Micheli

On July 6, 2006 at 0545 hours, Captain Arthur Gay, Firefighter Leonard Widdis and Firefighter Brian Piantoni of Brockton Tower 1 and Firefighter James Micheli of Tower 2 were part of the response to a fire at 7779 Montello Street, a fully occupied, multi-unit apartment building. They maneuvered the tower bucket around utility wires in a narrow alley through dense smoke to rescue two victims from the window and administered CPR and rescue breathing to them as the bucket was lowered to the ground.

Canton Fire Department

Lt. Christopher S. Sanford
FF/EMT Donald J. Lester
FF/Paramedic Kevin P. Hurley
FF/Paramedic Gregory Woodbury
FF/EMT Brian E. Leary Jr.
FF/EMT Jeffrey P. O'Brien

On April 3, 2007, at 2100 hours, the Canton Fire Department was dispatched to 735 Randolph Street for a medical aid call. Engine 2 under the direction of Lt. Sanford and Firefighters Brown and Lester and Ambulance 1 with Firefighters O'Brien and Leary responded. Paramedic Ambulance 2 responded to the scene for additional assistance with the patient, and Ambulance 2 was dispatched with Firefighters Hurley and Woodbury.

As crews began to pack up and gather equipment, Firefighter Peter Brown of Engine 2 began carrying some equipment back to Engine 2. A few moments later, Lt. Sanford of Engine 2 exited the home and found Firefighter Brown unresponsive and laying on the ground next to Engine 2. Lt. Sanford immediately called for the other crew members of Engine 2 and Ambulances 1 and 2 to respond outside. Firefighter Brown was in full cardiac arrest. Paramedics and EMT's immediately began to treat him transported him to Caritas Norwood Hospital. While en route to the hospital, ambulance crews continued to work on their brother firefighter providing defibrillation, oxygen, and medications. Their combined efforts were rewarded when Firefighter Brown was successfully resuscitated. Firefighter Brown was released one week later after quintuple bypass surgery.

On August 30, 2006 at 0424 hours, the Fitchburg Fire Department received a called for a building fire at 200 Columbus Street a large 24-unit garden style condo complex with reports of trapped occupants. A second alarm was sounded immediately.

As fire crews advanced hose lines into the fire building, they were met with heavy smoke, fire and heat conditions in the stairways and adjoining apartments. Rescue crews began search operations. At the same time, a member of Tower Ladder 3 reported additional victims standing on a rear third floor balcony, unable to escape through the heat and smoke. Ground crews raised two 35-foot extension ladders and rescued those victims. At 0434 hours, Fitchburg Fire Alarm received a phone call from someone, still trapped on the third floor, who was located, removed to a back balcony, and rescued by ladder.

In addition to heavy fire conditions faced by fire crews, they were also challenged by inoperable fire hydrants and the setback of the fire building on Columbus Street, which required that all ladder work be performed through the use of numerous 28 ft. and 35 ft. ground ladders for rescues and the venting of windows and the roof.

Amazingly, no civilians were injured or killed and firefighters only suffered minor strains and heat burns.

Melrose and City of Malden Fire Departments

Melrose Fire Department Group 4
Captain John White
Lieutenant Richard Fink
Lieutenant James Gibson
Firefighter Neil Jones
Firefighter John Sands
Firefighter Daryl MacLeod
Firefighter William Trudeau
Firefighter Matthew Brammer
Firefighter Joseph Nunley
Firefighter Paul Lepore
City of Malden Engine 2, Group 3
Fire Captain Walter Bruce
Firefighter Vernon Allen
Firefighter Adrian Leary
Firefighter Christopher Dillon

On October 1, 2006 at 2225 hours, the Melrose Fire Department responded to 46 Sanford Street on reports of a fire in an occupied, six family building.

Upon arrival, first due companies were met with heavy fire and a report of a person trapped on the top floor where the fire was. The crew of Melrose Engine 2 advanced an attack line while the crew of Ladder 1 began an aggressive search. Under heavy smoke and heat conditions and very poor visibility, the crew of Ladder 1 was able to locate a victim who had been overcome by the fire. As the crew began to exit the building, they were met by the crews of Malden Engine 2 and Melrose Engine 3, who assisted in the removal of the victim down a narrow staircase. Once outside, the victim regained consciousness in the ambulance but later succumbed to her injuries.

Aside from the fire suppression and rescue challenges faced by both departments, it should be noted that two members of the Melrose Fire Department who responded to this fire, were junior men, one of whom had yet to attend the Massachusetts Firefighting Academy. In addition, had it not been for the recent re-activation of Melrose Engine 2 by the City of Melrose and the quick response of Melrose Engine 3 and Malden Engine 2 - this fire could have been much worse.

Dispatch
Firefighter Mark Milroy

On December 18, 2006 at 1913 hours, crews from the Plymouth Fire Department responded to 122 Drew Road for a reported building fire. Upon arrival, they were faced with a 3-story residence showing heavy fire on two sides of the first floor starting to spread to the second floor. As crews approached the building, they noticed the owner and occupant of the building standing at a second floor window taunting the Plymouth Police. Fire crews immediately went to work raising ground ladders and stretching supply lines for tanker shuttle operations due to lack of municipal water. Throughout this time, the homeowner continued to move around the burning building, darting in and out of open windows, taunting police and fire crews and throwing objects down on top of the firefighters, screaming that he did not want their help, and attempted to push the ladder away from the building. Firefighters persisted and were able to raise the ladder.

Once inside the home, fire crews used a thermal imaging camera to locate the unconscious and unresponsive homeowner in a bedroom. Firefighters passed the victim out a window to other firefighters on a ladder, which was now being enveloped by flames coming from the second floor below.

The total efforts of Plymouth Fire crews not only saved this man's life but the continued firefighting effort after the rescue, also saved a considerable portion of the house, despite the challenges of a long, dirt road and the lack of an available water supply.

Special Fire Marshal's Award Recipients

Danvers Fire Department

All 51 Members

On Wednesday, November 22, 2006, the day before Thanksgiving, at 0246 hours, an explosion at a chemical processing facility that registered 0.5 on the Richter scale rocked the Town of Danvers

The magnitude of this incident was enormous from the moment of the initial explosion until the conclusion of the investigation. The Emergency Dispatch Center was inundated with calls and communications were impossible. However, every off-duty member of the Danvers Fire Department immediately reported for duty. Every member of the department maintained their composure and professionalism as they placed themselves in harm's way to suppress the fire, search unstable buildings, evacuate residents and provide emergency medical services. In addition, firefighters went door-to-door to ensure residents' safety, making sure homes were still habitable, checking for chimney and structural damage, and checking for smoke alarm and carbon monoxide detectors. In the ensuing days, firefighters helped residents retrieve critical items such as medications, identification, additional clothing and when possible, missing pets. The initial phase of this incident lasted a week, taxing the strength and endurance of Danvers' firefighters.

For the sustained professionalism, bravery and compassion of each member of the Danvers Fire Department during this severe incident, the Fire Marshal's Award was presented to the 51 members of the department.

Danvers Group 3
Capt. Douglas Conrad
Lt. Richard Chase
Lt. Marc Smorczewski
FF Todd Redford
FF Brian Barry
FF Craig Vesey
FF Dave Mondi
FF Dewayne Sullivan
FF Alishia Ouellette
FF David Cole

Group 3 under the command of Captain Doug Conrad was the first arriving company to the scene and was confronted with intense fire, multiple secondary explosions and over 200 residents who were jolted out of their beds. Capt. Conrad immediately directed the group to evacuate residents from the danger zone and to search homes for victims as well as begin suppression efforts. There was serious structural damage to over 70 homes; the force of the explosion spewed broken glass and building materials throughout the area and tore transformers and power lines from their poles making transportation difficult and hazardous. Secondary explosions and a leaking 1,000-gallon propane tank and the fact that risers to the sprinkler system were sheared off by the explosion complicated the firefight. As a result of Group 3's actions, there were no subsequent injuries during rescue and firefighting operations. They conducted themselves with professionalism, bravery and compassion to the people they protect and set the tone for the incident that was to last over a week.

Fire Marshal's Award for Excellence in Leadership

Danvers Fire Department - Senior Fire Officers

Captain Douglas Conrad
Deputy Chief Kevin Farrell
Fire Chief James Tutko

Capt Conrad was the first officer in charge of the scene and the initial decisions he made about allocating resources for fire extinguishment and civilian evacuation were critical to the long-term success of managing this protracted incident.

Deputy Chief Farrell was the operations chief and remained so throughout the incident as the scope and complexity became apparent and the amount of resources needed to confront it grew significantly.

Chief Tutko was part of a unified incident command structure, coordinated local, state and federal resources throughout the incident and kept the safety of his firefighters and the members of his community paramount in his mind.
