Community Awards – Dublin
The Ohio Society presented Dalan Zartman of the Washington Township Fire Department with the Fire Fighter Commendation Medal.
Dalan is a decorated veteran of the United States Marine Corps and a 12 year veteran of the Washington Township Fire Department. Dalan has been instrumental in developing a technical rescue training program in partnership with Bowling Green State University. This program has garnered state and national recognition in that it has been approved for use in training members of the State and National Search and Rescue teams. Not only is Dalan considered an expert in this area of training, but his expertise has also been vital in the purchase and equipping of the Department’s technical rescue program. He was recommended by his Department Fire Chief Al Woo.
