Gates Fire District awarded Good Neighbor award by Red Cross

Gates Fire District was selected to receive the “Good Neighbor Award” from the Greater Rochester Chapter of the American Red Cross.

The “Good Neighbor Award” is presented to an individual or organization outside the American Red Cross for having made a significant humanitarian contribution to the local, national, or international community in support of the Red Cross.

Joseph Manuse played a pivotal role in this award, and we always appreciated the hard work he did for our community every single day. He is greatly missed!

“Thank you so much for your hard work, and dedication to support the Red Cross Mission” said Alesia Sitka their Engagement Specialist from the American Red Cross Western & Central New York Region.

Fire safety representatives from neighboring agencies also came to support and congratulate them.

Thank you all for your continued support!
