Unit Citations, a set on Flickr.
By Battalion Chief Mark Davis
Several units from the lower end of the 1st Battalion participated in a Unit Citation Ceremony at Silver Spring Fire Station 1 on Wednesday, October 2nd. On April 2, 2013, units responded to 415 Silver Spring Avenue for fire in the apartment building. They arrived to find heavy fire conditions on the top floor and made multiple rescues. Sadly - one resident perished in the blaze - but many others were saved. The work of these units is exemplary of what it takes to be a firefighter when the "pressure is on."
