Awards for Mercer Island firefighters
The Mercer Island Fire Department held its annual awards banquet last week, honoring those who serve the Island.
Firefighter Alec Munro was named the ‘2011 Firefighter of the Year,’ while Lieutenant Curt Groscost was named the ‘2011 Fire Officer of the Year.’
The awards are based on several criteria and help recognize those who uphold the department’s mission to contributed to Mercer Island’s reputation as a safe, friendly and economically thriving community to live and work in.
The awards are voted on by other members of the department.
