The firefighter and first responder of the year are decided each year by a vote of the department's membership. Those selected as firefighter and first responder of the year are chosen by their peers based on leadership, response to incidents, and personal growth during the year. Members chosen receive a plaque to keep and are listed on the perpetual plaques in the station. The designation of "Rookie of the Year" was created in 2009 to recognize new members of the department who show exceptional commitment and leadership in the department. It is also selected by a vote of the membership.
