ANNUAL AWARDS BANQUET

Friday, January 16, 2015  On Friday night we held our annual awards banquet at the NorthStone Country Club. We had a great evening of fellowship celebrating 2014. Our Town leaders attended as did two leaders from the Huntersville Police Department. 



We recognized our 2014 top off-duty call runners (volunteer off-duty calls) Mark Auten 208 calls, Bill Suthard 178 calls and Brent Irvin 155 calls. We also named our 2014 Firefighter of the year – Chad Dunn and 2014 Fire Officer of the year – John Welty. 

This year we also recognized one of our firefighter wives for her dedication and volunteerism over the last few years. Leanne Costello has been a consistent, dedicated support for our many community events, blood drives and fundraisers. She, like many of our FF wives, is the solid rock behind the scenes that support our firefighters and our Department every day. 

We would like to also thank several sponsors who provide continued support for our department everyday: Next Level Readiness of Huntersville, Municipal Emergency Services (MES), Outback Steakhouse, Longhorn Steakhouse as well as the NorthStone Country Club which always eagerly hosts us each year and provides unbelievable service, food and attention.
