They serve a vital role in our community and tonight two firefighters are honored. The firefighter and emergency medical technicians were recognized by the American Legion in Utica. Firefighter and paramedic Brian Bova along with firefighter Joseph Puleo received honors. Firefighter Puleo says tonight is really a team award.
He says, "It's humbling because everything that we've done to get to this point is all because of other people, including myself. And I wish I could have everyone here with me within the department that helps, so it's very humbling."
