Galveston County Firefighter Appreciation Dinner
October 30, 2016

This special night was held for all 17 Fire Departments in Galveston County.  Sometimes our firefighters are not told enough how much they are APPRECIATED!  All of these firefighters from every department have dedicated their lives to helping others in times of disasters and emergencies.  Sometimes these events take place during family dinners, Christmas and other holidays, or during the middle of the night.  ALL of our firefighters remain "ON DUTY" 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Not an easy task.  

So we set aside this night to honor the firefighters of Galveston County with Dinner, Awards, Door Prizes, and words of encouragment and praise.  

THANK YOU to ALL who serve in a FIRE/EMS job for our County.

Thanks to following businesses who contributed door Prizes!
