Kate Kuntz and Joe Grant Recognized as 2010 Rookies of the Year

Friday, May 14, 2010

During Halesite's annual Installation Dinner held last Saturday, May 14, 2011, two people were recognized as "Rookies of the Year". This award is given to members with five or less years within the Department who demonstrate great person achievement in their early years within the organization.

The first recipient of this award for 2010 was Hook & Ladder Company member Kate Kuntz. She led the Department with 595 hours of cumulative service in 2010 compared to the average of 173 hours. Kuntz completed Firefighter I and EMT during the same year. She took on leadership positions at both the Company and Department level and actively participated in numerous Department Committees and company activities.

The second Rookie of the Year award was given to Hose Rescue Company member Joe Grant. Joe put in the second most hours in 2010 with 539. By comparison, the third highest contributor had 321 hours. Grant also completed Firefigher 1 and EMT in the same year and was also involved in numerous Department Committees and Company-sponsored activities. Not satisfied with helping people only in Halesite, Grant joined embraced the emergency services even further and joined the Huntington Community First Aid Squad where he has quickly risen to Crew Leader. He has also undertaken a new career working for Hunter Ambulance Service.
