During the appreciation dinner held on Saturday, January 28th we gathered family, friends, mutual aid fire companies and other shareholders who help Fuller Hose Company #1 fulfill their mission.
Since the inception of the water rescue program, Fuller Hose has been very fortunate to have the leadership, dedication, and guidance of the United States Coast Guard Station Erie. Every water rescue call we respond to on Lake Erie involves the Coast Guard. The men and women serving at Station Erie have offered and been some of the best mentors, sharing their knowledge in the area of search and rescue while suggesting small changes to make our program on Lake Erie even better. We wanted to thank all the members of USCG Station Erie for the assistance they offer to Fuller Hose Company #1 by presenting this special recognition, accepting the plaque were BMC Jeff Thor, Officer in Charge, and BM1 Matthew Woodring, XPO of Station Erie.
