Fire Department Honors Two of its Own

Recently the  (MIFD) held its annual awards banquet. Firefighter Alec Munro received the 2011 Firefighter of the Year Award and Lieutenant Curt Groscost was awarded 2011 Fire Officer of the Year.

The mission of the MIFD is to contribute to Mercer Island's reputation as a safe, friendly, economically thriving community in which to live, work, learn, play and visit. The motto of the Department is, "The desire to serve, the ability to perform, the courage to act."

The annual recognition is bestowed upon officers through a peer voting system.
