The Doug Stevens Firefighter of the Year Award

Line Of Duty Death

Doug Steven, 42, of Story City/Lafayette Township Fire Department passed Sunday February 6, 2000 in the Line of Duty.

May he rest in eternal peace and may the Good Lord watch over and protect the loved ones, family, and friends that he left behind.

The Award

The main purpose of this award is to further encourage the development, and pride within our department, and also promote the actions of individuals who have well-represented the character and commitment that Doug Stevens left us with on and off the fire scene! It is also our underlying hope that this award will also further encourage such actions of all StoryCity’s Finest in the future to come. This award will be presented annually to the individual who best exemplifies these characteristics, and encompasses all of these aspects of our department, the members of the department, and the community; first-dedication, second-loyalty, third-productivity, and finally-professionalism. This member must also be an active and a participating member of the department and shall be decided upon by the fire chief and 2 assistant fire chiefs of the department.

We strongly believe that the presentation of this award each year will reflect great credit on all of our firefighters, and the job that they do every time that we are called into action. We also believe that this award will bring greater pride to our department, and community. We believe that all efforts have been expended, and will continue to be expended to assure the integrity, fairness and impartiality to all department members and the nominees now and in the future to come.
