LEAGUE CITY, TEXAS – The League City Volunteer Fire Department hosted its annual awards banquet on Sept. 29 at Fire Station No. 2.

“The recognition of our fellow fighters is very important to us as leaders,” said District Chief Daniel Gibbs. “We want to recognize the firefighters who go above and beyond and continuously demonstrate excellence throughout the year.”

Awards presented include:
• Recognition awards to League City’s Street Department and Information Technology Department for their support and responsiveness in addressing the needs of the Volunteer Fire Department.
• Most Trainings Award: Daniel Parada
• Most Runs/Calls Award: Kevin Karban
• Rookie of the Year - East Side: Tyler Champagne
• Rookie of the Year - West Side: Colton Goudie
• Volunteer Firefighter President’s Award: Ryan Brady
• Chief’s Award: Ray Bigonesse
• Fire Officer of the Year: Kyle Bartosh
• Firefighter of the Year: Brock Howe

Bartosh was selected as the Fire Officer of the Year for his dedication to the department throughout the last 12 years. He has served as Captain of his fire station for the past four years and helped turn an underperforming and disenfranchised station into a station that is respected and hardworking.

Howe was selected as the Firefighter of the Year for his dedication to the department and Fire Station No. 3. As a veteran firefighter, he has mentored numerous firefighters by teaching, coaching and taking any scenario and turning it into a learning experience for those around him.

Length of service pins were also presented to Nathan Bates, Bruce Curatola, Derek Purser, and Chris Sabin for five-years of service; Justin Harker for 10 years of service; and Deborah Bly, Tim Daley, and Andre Hoarau for 20 years of service.

Recipients were selected by a committee of representatives from each fire station.
