Globe — Globe Fire Chief Al Gameros had the floor for most of the night at the Globe City Council meeting on Monday, Oct. 14.
He recognized two of his men, and also gave updates on asking to acquire a new fire truck, trying to start collaborating with the San Carlos Fire Department to serve the Apache Gold Casino, reinstating the Globe Fire Department Cadet Program and purchasing new heart monitors. There was also an update about “A-frame” signs and recreational vehicles.
Firefighters Claudio Rodriguez and Michael Peterson were given the “Above and Beyond” award after they received a call to the home of an 86-year-old man who fell while taking out his trash. And instead of just leaving after the call, they picked up all the trash that was in the man’s yard. The two men said they were just doing their job and didn’t think twice about doing it.
