2022 Firefighter Awards Banquet
By Public Education Coordinator Jackie O'Hara
May 23, 2023

Back in April the Manhattan Fire Protection District recognized and honored its members' achievements from 2022 at an appreciation banquet. Since it’s EMS week, it’s the perfect time to share and celebrate our members for their individual and company achievements!
The awards were given to those with 5, 10, 15, and 20 years of service to the District, Unit Citations, Life Saves, Individual Performance, and Community Service awards, as well as EMS, Firefighter, Rookie, and Officer of the Year.

These awards were chosen by the membership as a whole based on the criteria for each award to be the 2022 award recipients.
Please join us in congratulating the following members:

• FF/PM Kalli Markle recipient of the Todd Burke EMS Person of the Year Award
• FF/PM Jacob Walsh recipient of the Matthew Zack Rookie of the Year Award
• FF/PM Jeremy Wilson recipient of the Jack “John” Fitzgerald Firefighter of the Year Award
• LT Kyle Eller recipient of the Dale L. VanderBoegh Officer of the Year

Congratulations to all! Thank you for continuing to proudly service the communities of Manhattan, Peotone, and Wilton Center!
