News Release
Lebanon Fire District Honors Its Own (Photo) - 04/09/19

On Friday April 5th, the Lebanon Fire District hosted a record 160 guests at their 2018 awards banquet held at the Boulder Fall’s Event Center in Lebanon.  LFD celebrates and recognizes those in the District who have made a significant contribution or performed above and beyond the call of duty over the past year.  Among the awards which are handed out every year, was a very special recognition for years of service.  Volunteer Captain Bob Berry has been with the District for 60 years, which is an outstanding achievement.  Although Berry no longer responds to fight fire, he is still an integral part of drill night and training.  

Special recognition also went to two local businesses who displayed an exceptional commitment to fire and life safety over the past year. Nick Brooks and Spencer Headley were recognized on behalf of Weyerhaeuser Santiam Mill for their fire safety efforts and Art Boykin and Bo Yates were recognized on behalf of the Lebanon Community School District.

A highlight of the night was when the Bob Berry Outstanding Career Member award was presented to Fire Chief Gordon Sletmoe for his leadership and vision which has led the District to become one of the most progressive, professional, and innovative fire departments in the state.   This year the award was presented by Chief Sletmoe’s sons, Ben and Kyle, who were guests at the banquet.
