Each year the Santa Maria Elks Lodge hosts an annual Firefighter Appreciation Night to honor emergency responders in Santa Barbara County. Following a dinner comprised of Santa Maria tri-tip with all the fixings, a stirring ceremony is held to acknowledge the selfless achievements of firefighters from the Santa Maria area.
This year’s award went to Gary Helming for Outstanding Firefighter of the Year for Los Padres National Forest’s Santa Lucia Ranger District. BC Helming took the stage with his son, 6-year old Riley, to deliver a rousing acception speech.
“Gary is truly deserving of this honor from our fellow chiefs and cooperators,” said Santa Lucia FMO Tom Plymale. “He is among the finest in our fire service leadership.”
Congratulations to BC Helming on being named Santa Maria Elks Lodge Firefighter of the Year.
