Fire department named fire prevention award winner

The Three Rivers Fire Department has been named the winner of the 2015 Leland Gayheart Fire Safety and Prevention Award for the department’s Fire Prevention for Schools program.
The University of Michigan Trauma Burn Center supports the work of Michigan firefighters by presenting a fire-safety prevention award in honor of Leland Gayheart. Gayheart was a 23-year-old Ann Arbor-area firefighter who lost his life to a burn injury in 1991.
The award includes a $500 honorarium and was created as a tribute to Gayheart, and to encourage fire-prevention programs within local fire departments.
Three Rivers Fire Lt. Dave Cramton said the award is presented annually to a fire department whose innovative efforts have demonstrated a statewide, countywide or citywide impact on fire safety and prevention.
Cramton says the department will use the prize money to purchase additional fire-safety and -prevention materials.
