Augusta Department of Safety's annual Firemen's Dinner held Saturday

The Augusta Department of Safety is a combined police/fire service that has successfully protected the community for decades. The result of the consolidation has produced strong and efficient departments, along with a tight-knit brotherhood of public servants.
Each year the firefighters host a dinner to recognize achievement and to enjoy the closeness of all department members, along with the volunteer firefighters, who are essential to the success of the Department of Safety.
Saturday evening the dinner was held at The Point Events Center in Augusta.
Fire Division Major Ray Marbut and Robert Sage, Director of the Department of Public Safety both shared statistics from 2018 and thanked all of the current personnel and retired members.
Ron Reavis was named Volunteer Firefighter of the Year and honored for years of service were Kip Richardson with 20 years, James Frame with 15 years, and Phil Gehlen with 5 years.
