BOCA RATON – Fire Chief Tom Wood presented the department’s Citizen’s Courage Award to 9-year-old Kyle Conger during ceremonies March 15.

Kyle was at home when his grandmother went into a severe hypoglycemic attack. Kyle stayed calm, called 9-1-1 and was able to relay important live saving information to responding medical units.

Chief Wood also recognized Boca Raton Firefighter of the Year, Driver/Engineer Mike Lucas and Frank Correggio who was named State of Florida Public Information Officer of the Year.  Chief Wood also presented badges to eight individuals who received promotions.

At the close of the event, Chief Wood dedicated a piece of steel from the World Trade Centers attack on September 11, 2001.  Members from “We Will Never Forget 9/11 Foundation,” Inc., who gave the artifact, were on hand along with retired FDNY firefighters.

Fire Chief Tom Wood unveiled the enclosure which houses the steel. After the unveiling it was blessed and was taken to its final resting place, on the second floor at Fire Administration, 6500 Congress Ave. where it will remain on permanent display.

Boca Raton Fire Rescue Services was honored to have Rescue 4, the 1996 HME/Salsbury Heavy Rescue truck, which was at the World Trade Center on 9-11 at this event.  Rescue 4, now retired, is part of the Remembrance Rescue Project. To help Educate, Honor and Remember what took place on that tragic day.

This truck was the only heavy rescue truck that was not destroyed.
