Community Volunteers Honored for Achievements and Performance

Key to Success

Titusville Fire and Emergency Services Department recognized the important contributions the members of its Community Volunteer Program made toward  the success of its operations during 2006.


Volunteer Recognition-2007


Across the United States, thousands of groups and organizations paid homage to community members during last week's National Volunteer Week.  On April 19th, Titusville Fire and Emergency Services hosted its annual Community Volunteer Ceremony, in recognition and appreciation of the tremendous impact its community volunteers' generous donation of time and hard work had towards meeting the department's mission.  Remarked out-going Fire Chief Rick Talbert, "A few of you were already volunteering for our department when I joined it in the mid-nineties and I greeted most of you after we revamped our program 4 years ago.  I am grateful that my last official act as Titusville's Fire Chief is to be here tonight to thank you.

It speaks volumes about your committment to our organization and our community that you have continued to support the activities of Titusville Fire and Emergency Services and our community.  We now have a total of thirteen volunteers in our program who, during 2006 alone, contributed a total of 2,127.25 service hours.  You assisted with a wide range of activities, from receptionist to data-entry to electronic mapping to chaplain services and logistics and supplies.  Your skills and abilities translate as the Keys to Success of our organization."

Volunteer Coordinator LaWanda Park then thanked each of the volunteers, awarding them with a certificate of appreciation delineating the individual number of donated hours and a "key" lapel pin, signifying the importance of their contribution to the department's success.  Thanked for their service were:

Neil Burnett        Chaplain John DeVoss      Olga Gomez     Donna May     Ruth Miller      Anne Oliver      Karen Reshel    Jody Shipton      Mariel Sisson     Bonnie Smith      Catherine Simkins     Jane Williamsen     Stacey Woodward
