Box 15 supports the Veterans!

Box 15’s Rehab 1 again hosted the registration team for the Veteran’s Day Parade today.  This was our fourth year to support this group.  In addition to coffee, hot chocolate, doughnuts, etc., we deployed our tent and provided some welcome warmth with our propane heater.  We would like to thank all who are currently in our armed forces, as well as all the veterans for their service and devotion to protecting our country and keeping our citizens safe.

A Thank You From CFD

Columbus Division of Fire - Thank You!

Several members of Box 15 were honored with Citizen’s Distinguished Service Awards at last night’s Columbus Division of Fire’s Annual Awards Ceremony. The event, held at the Villa Milano banquet facility, honored 18 of our most active members for their untiring efforts to provide firefighter rehab services. As of this writing, Box 15 is experiencing our most active year in the history of the organization. Thanks mostly to a hot and humid summer, we logged 28 days of hot weather standby staffing, 53 working incidents and dedicating more than 300 hours of volunteer effort between June 1 and August 31. For the year , we’ve responded to 88 incidents (to date).
