CHINO VALLEY, AZ- following the Jun 19, 2014 Chino Valley Fire District board meeting, friends, family, and fellow firefighters joined in to celebrate in the CVFD Badge Ceremony to welcome newly promoted Battalion Chief Allen Harris, Captain Terry Jacobson, Engineer Scott Bulters and Probationary Firefighter Nick Guzzo.
Chief Scott Freitag opened the ceremony by displaying three new memorial quilts that were designed and created by CVFD staff and family members to honor the 19 Granite Mountain Hot Shots wild land firefighters who lost their lives on June 30, 2013.
Constructed from memorial patches and t-shirts, the quilts will be displayed at all three CVFD stations.
