BROOKINGS – The Brookings Fire Department celebrated several events at its April 2 meeting.
Above, firefighter Brett Lawrence (right) was awarded a chief’s coin for his actions in recognizing that coworker and fellow firefighter Dave Koch was suffering a cardiac episode while at work. This recognition and quick transport to a medical facility allowed Koch to participate in the presentation six days after receiving a pacemaker.
