Deputy Chief Brett Pollock Honored with Career Service Award

West Manatee (FL) Fire Rescue District is pleased to announce that Deputy Chief Brett Pollock will be presented with the Congressional Career Service Award on October 5th. D.C. Pollock will receive the award from United States Congressman Vern Buchanan during the 2015 Florida 16th Congressional District Fire and EMS Awards ceremony held in Sarasota.

Deputy Chief Pollock began his career with Westside Fire District as a volunteer firefighter in 1980 and was hired as a career firefighter in 1983. Chief Pollock progressed through the ranks including Engineer, Lieutenant, Captain, District Chief, and Battalion Chief and to his present rank of Deputy Chief.

During this time, D.C. Pollock became involved in the National Fallen Firefighters Program “Courage to Be Safe” and held the position of regional coordinator. The Fire Districts in Manatee County have benefited from his skills and ability in preparing and executing various grants. Specifically he was successful in obtaining a $1,000,000 “Assistance to Firefighter” grant that provided new compatible mobile and portable radios for all the fire districts in Manatee County.

Chief Thomas Sousa nominated D.C. Pollock for this award, stating that we cannot quantify the lives saved as a result of his work.

The Florida 16th Congressional District Fire and EMS Awards are a time to recognize fire and EMS personnel who have provided distinguished service to the people of Florida’s 16th Congressional District.
