  Handel Pinning   SFD 3344

       Chris is "pinned" with his new "MEMBER" badge by his wife.                            Regular Member Chris Handel with his very proud family.


Volunteer Firefighter Chris Handel, who is assigned to the Main Station, was awarded his regular badge after successfully completing his probationary period. 

 Chris joined the Simsbury Volunteer Fire Company having served as a volunteer firefighter in Greenwich CT and also serving our country in the Army National Guard.  Chris, a CT certified firefighter 1, was able to complete his necessary in house training program that allowed him to be recommended for regular membership by his station officer, Captain Kristin Kelley.  A vote of Chris's peers confirmed the recommendation and his regular badge was presented to Chris at a ceremony held at the Main Fire Station attended by Fire Company members from all 6 stations, as well as Chris's family.  Chris has also been recently the assigned Engineer position for Engine 8 which is located at the Main Station.
