Firemen Chris Wade and Jamie Cable recently received honors during the annual community meeting of the Watkins Volunteer Fire Department.

Wade was the recipient of the Fireman of the Year and First Responder of the Year awards at the meeting.

The recipients of both awards are determined each year by a department vote. This was the first year in the department’s history that both were awarded to the same person.

Cable received the Fire Chief’s award.

Determined by Fire Chief Charles Forsythe, the recipient must have demonstrated high levels of performance, training and participation in the department’s fundraising events throughout the year.

Forsythe presented plaques to both Wade and Cable at the meeting.
