Belvoir’s Directorate of Emergency Services awarded several fire and police personnel for their work Feb. 13, at fire station 463.

“I think it’s important for us not to just recognize that … we’re carrying out the doctor’s orders efficiently and effectively on the street – even in times of furlough,” said Kevin Good, acting deputy fire chief, about one of the incidents that occurred during furlough. “This was a normal day of business for us.”

The awards ceremony was a tribute to what DES does to serve the community.

“It’s extremely important to recognize our team members on the great things they do each and every day,” said Lt. Col. Christopher Tomlinson, Belvoir garrison commander.

The awards given are as follows:
