Posted: 03/24/2014
March 24, 2014 - Mayor Madeline Rogero and Fire Chief Stan Sharp honored three City firefighters today as Firefighters of the 4th Quarter 2013 for their life-saving efforts during a New Year's Eve fire.

Master Firefighter and Paramedic Dean Owens, Senior Firefighter and Paramedic Greg Sauceman, and Master Firefighter and Emergency Medical Technician Hugh Laxton were battling a Dec. 31 house fire at 5508 Dandyline Street when KFD Capt. Mark Lacey, a 20-year department veteran, suffered a heart attack. The immediate and skillful medical care rendered by the trio of firefighters is credited with Capt. Lacey surviving.

Congratulations to Dean Owens, Greg Sauceman and Hugh Laxton, KFD's Firefighters of the Quarter!
