The NSSAR Fire Safety Commendation Medal was presented to Battalion Chief Brad Beam by Chapter President Roger Cross in a ceremony at the Williamsburg City Fire Department. Beam was thanked for all he does for the Williamsburg Fire Department and this community. President Cross made the following remarks in commendation: “This medal is awarded in recognition of your accomplishments and outstanding contributions to protect human life and property by preventing injuries or casualties due to fires. While serving as the EMS chief, you have been instrumental in the COVID-19 pandemic response and efforts to reduce its spread in Williamsburg and throughout the region. You are also active with fire emergency management, fire prevention, and are the lead for a new program called Mobile Integrated Health providing an additional level of support and service to those most needy in our community.”
Fire Chief David Eagle thanked the Williamsburg Chapter for recognizing one of his worthy members. Chief Eagle then announced that he had received this same Fire Safety Commendation Medal from the Dan River Chapter SAR in about the year 1999 and still wears it on his dress uniform with pride.
