Golden Valley Fire Department Relief Association > Recognition > Benchmarks


Years-of-service are important to recognize in the fire service. There are many challenges, certifications, tasks and incidents that make up a five-year period, and it’s key to reflect on the selflessness and dedication firefighters contribute to our department. Each year, we recognize years-of-service benchmarks by an individual firefighter in five-year increments. Below are the Golden Valley firefighters who reached a special benchmark in 2022 :
