AFFI Warrior Program PDF Print E-mail

Collinsville firefighters have joined with other locals to raise funds for the Associated Firefighters of Illinois Warrior Program.  Funds raised will be used to purchase a modified/custom vehicle for a wounded veteran.  To raise enough money, the group will be selling t-shirts and hosting a Poker Run and Golf Scramble on August 22.  More details can be found at the Metro East Professional Fire Fighters website.  T-shirts can also be paid for online and shipped through the website, and you can also register for the other two events online.

From the City of Collinsville Employee Newsletter:

Please join us in extending a warm congratulations to Lt. Eric Schrage, along with firefighters Chris Frawley and Mike Harris. They have been named Firefighter(s) of the Month for November.

The nomination for these three gentlemen is outlined below:

On November 29th, Box Alarm 1205 was struck for a single-family structure fire on March Drive. Lt. Eric Schrage, along with firefighters Chris Frawley and Mike Harris, were operating at this one-story frame structure fire with heavy involvement to the front of the structure and extension into the attic space and front porch. Upon initial knock down of the heaviest portion of fire, Lt. Schrage along with firefighter Frawley conducted a primary search. Lt. Schrage found an unconscious male victim near the rear patio door. He, alongside firefighter Frawley and Harris, successfully removed the injured victim to the rear of the structure and immediately began resuscitative efforts. These men’s actions reflect on the fire service’s true values and are a testament to the heroism performed on a regular basis by all in the fire service.

Today I would like to individually recognize Lt. Schrage, Firefighter Frawley and Firefighter Harris as Firefighter of the Month for November 2013. The action taken by these men undoubtedly saved the life of a helpless and unconscious victim. Without their quick action and dedication to duty, the life of this victim would have certainly been lost. Congratulations gentlemen on a job well done!
