Lt. Governor John Bohlinger presented the Victor Volunteer Fire Department with a ReadyMontana Award for outstanding community volunteerism in protecting the Victor community from fire.
The award was presented at the ServeMontana Symposium ceremony in Helena in February. The Serve Montana web site, states, “The Victor Volunteer Fire Department is a 2012 recipient of a ReadyMontana Award for their dedication to protecting the Victor community from fire.”
The Victor Volunteer Fire Department and Quick Response Unit have been responding to fires and emergencies in the Victor community since 1950. Volunteers give their time not only to respond to emergencies, but also to hold events to prepare the Victor community for other emergencies and disasters.
Roylene Gaul writes about the Victor Volunteer Fire Department, “A recent event highlights this group’s dedication. At a house fire, the quick response of volunteers and their dedication to safety and preparedness minimized a tragic loss. Responders cared for an injured homeowner at the same time dealing with a fire situation. Members then coordinated with the Red Cross and local churches to have the family’s needs addressed. The Victor Volunteer Fire Department has the dedication of volunteers with professionalism and a true caring for their community. The Victor Volunteer Fire Department is dedicated, professional, and caring!”
