More than two dozen department members were also recognized in honor of their role in the Call of the Year, which occurred on July 27 when a woman was pinned in her bed by a tree that fell through her roof.

Members of the Emergency Medical Services unit were also honored for providing treatment to a victim who fell on the railroad tracks through the gap on July 2, and for reviving a male in cardiac arrest on Sept. 5.
