The Scandia Good Neighbor Award honors individuals, businesses, and civic groups who make our community a better place to live.
Scandia Mayor Christine Maefsky presented a Good Neighbor Award Proclamation to the Scandia Fire and Rescue Department and its 25 members at the July 19, 2022 City Council meeting.
The Scandia Fire and Rescue Department was nominated by Mayor Christine Maefsky, who recognized the innumerable sacrifices the volunteer firefighters make in order to serve our community: to risk their lives to save others, and to be on call at all times to attend to the critical needs of people. During the dangerous early days of COVID, the members were still doing their firefighting/EMT duties even with the unknown effects of the virus. As well, the firefighters commit to many hours of training to attain their firefighter and EMT licensures, while also attending at least three fire and rescue trainings per month, and attend weekend fire school once each year, sacrificing their time with family.
Mayor Maefsky and the City Council presented each individual volunteer firefighter with a Good Neighbor certificate, and expressed deep gratitude to each for being valuable members of the Scandia community who consistently demonstrate the qualities of being Good Neighbors.
Please join us in offering thanks, appreciation and gratitude to the volunteer members of the Scandia Fire and Rescue Department for their many qualities of being Scandia Good Neighbors!
