For over 130 years, the El Paso Fire Department’s brave men and women have demonstrated their willingness to serve others with their steadfast courage, selflessness, and bold commitment to pursuing a safer future for our community.
Each year, the Medal Day ceremony gives our organization the opportunity to reflect on and honor all that the EPFD members have done to pay tribute to their heroism, professionalism, and exceptional leadership in upholding the Department’s lifesaving mission.
During last night’s Medal Day ceremony, multiple #EPFD members received their lifesaving awards for their courage deeds that resulted in the saving of a life, members of the community who assisted the EPFD on its lifesaving mission were also recognized. Also, the Firefighter Unit and Civilian of the Year were recognized.
Congratulations to our Firefighter Unit of the Year: Lt: Burns and FST Avalos, and to our Civilian of the Year: Paul Chavez, and to our Purple Heart recipient: FF Rap, our Lifesaving Award recipients and our Civilian Citation recipients. Your commitment and dedication truly embody the ideals of the El Paso Fire Department.
