Tahoe Douglas Fire celebrated promotions and recognized years of service Wednesday at MontBleu.

“Fire Chief Ben Sharit challenged 20 new firefighters and staff members to continue the important work we do every day in our community,” said Eric Guevin, Fire Marshal spokesperson for the Tahoe Douglas Fire Protection District.

Fourteen firefighters were recognized with service awards, with a special note for 20 years of service for Battalion Chief Jim Antti and Captain Chuck Salerno.

“The Fire District has been very busy with training these probationary firefighters and it was time to pause to recognize their success, to acknowledge the promotions of 19 district employees and to reflect on the progress TDFPD has made as an organization towards our goals to protect and serve our community,” said Ben Sharit, Fire Chief.

The Tahoe Douglas Fire Protection District is an “all risk” department providing fire prevention, fire suppression, advanced life support, explosive ordinance Disposal, Forest Fuels Management, and Emergency Rescue. The dedicated professionals respond to 2,000 emergency calls annually.
