FREDERICKTOWN, OH - Despite Saturday's winter storm and the dangerous conditions on the roads, members of the Fredericktown Community Fire District and their families pressed on through the ice and snow to attend the annual awards banquet and ceremony, which was held at the Fredericktown Presbyterian Church.

Three new members were sworn into the department, with eight other firefighters recognized for their commitment to the department through years of service. Several special awards, such as Tanker Driver of the Year and an award for the number of incidents responded to, were presented to other members of the department. The winner of the Flame of Distinction Award was the department Chief, Scott Mast.

"His dedication to the department, its firefighters, safety, and his community has led a major cultural change at the Fredericktown Community Fire District that has improved almost every aspect of the fire department," said Firefighter Jason Bostic. "He goes above and beyond in his work and won't ask anything of his firefighters that he wouldn't do himself. He is a true leader that cares for his firefighters and Fredericktown."
