Local resident, Emily Beach was awarded a 911 Commendation at the March 22nd 2023 meeting of the Tri-State Fire Protection District Trustees.  Board President Joe Wolski and Fire Chief Patrick Brenn awarded Emily a commendation certificate and a gift bag containing some small fire district swag as well as a fire district tee shirt and challenge coin.

On January 24th, 2023 at about 6:30 PM Emily Beach was home alone when she smelled an unusual odor.  She searched the house and found fire in a second floor bathroom.  Emily closed the bathroom door, which isolated the fire, helped her dogs escape, exited the building and immediately called 911.

Firefighters were on the scene within minutes and extinguished a small fire in the attic.  The first firefighters on the scene remarked that the fire was minutes away from becoming a fully involved attic fire.  Emily’s quick and decisive action saved the lives of her pet family members and helped minimize the damage to the family home.
