William Ross, a 27-year veteran of the Columbus Division of Fire. Firefighter Jason Miller received the Larry Parlett “Outstanding County Firefighter” honor. Jason is a Firefighter/Paramedic with the Plain Township Fire Department in New Albany. “We had some very strong candidates this year, but these two really stood out as very deserving individuals” Box 15 President Brett Barber said.

This year’s ceremony included two additional award categories – the Harry W. Knodel “Outstanding Service Award” and the Peter R. Fowler “Distinguished Service Award”.
