FREDERICK — The Frederick-Firestone Fire Protection District recently promoted three of its career firefighters — Lee Loveridge, Don Ogborn and TJ Simington — to shift lieutenant. The promotions became effective Feb. 2.
EMT/Firefighter Loveridge, Paramedic/Firefighter Ogborn and EMT/Firefighter Simington placed in the top three positions on the Fire District’s 2012 Promotional List based on their scores in the testing process.
“Please join me in congratulating them on this achievement and I am confident they will rise to the challenge,” said Fire Chief Ted M. Poszywak, of the Frederick-Firestone Fire Protection District. “as many will depend on them for their safety, example and guidance. A leader is not the person who others serve, but instead is the person who serves those within their charge. A leader must commit to do more than they ask of the people following them.”
The three officers will be officially recognized during the 2013 Awards and Promotional Ceremony the Fire District will host later in the year.
