Frank Brusino of Grand Island received special recognition during the Grand Island Fire Co. Fire Prevention open house on Friday, Oct. 14, at fire headquarters.
Grand Island Fire Co. Chief Kevin Koch made a presentation of the 2011 Fire Prevention Award to Brusino, who was commended for his leadership role in the Island's Community Emergency Response Team.
"His long-term participation represents the true spirit of volunteerism at its very best. Congratulations, Frank, for your exceptional acts of community service," Koch said.
"I feel very honored," Brusino said in receiving the award. "I want you guys to know I didn't do this all by myself."
Members of the fire company thank all those who set aside some quality time to meet with their GIFC volunteers and other fire prevention participants.
