Fire department honors its chief engineer
A 21-year veteran of both the fire department and ambulance service, Ed Nicholson, hadn't planned on attending the annual firefighters banquet. The busy man had other plans.
A colleague told him it wasn't optional, so he re-arranged. The FD's chief engineer, Nicholson said he had no idea he was receiving the Firefighter of the Year award.
Was he surprised?
"Yes, I was -- totally," he said.
