"The most important reason i have come to you today is to honor a deserving comrade", explained district fire inspector gunter wilhelm at the annual meeting of the huttenheim volunteer fire department. Wilhelm awarded the deputy commander of the fire department, thorsten graf, the silver state fire department medal for 25 years of active service. Chairman andreas schlegel and mayor ingrid reifenscheid-eckert joined in with congratulations and presentations.
Commander dominik stich and his deputy thorsten graf form a well-functioning duo at the helm of the fire department with 44 active members. Thorsten graf went on several missions, nine exercises and training sessions. For graf, the increase in exercise participation was particularly positive during the reporting period, with steffen rub, christopher haude and graf himself standing out as the most exercise-averse.
