Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

Members of Helper Junior High School's student government, accompanied by teacher Chris Sweeney (right) and principal Tom Montoya (back row) present the Helper Fire Department with a token of their appreciation at last week's city council meeting. Accepting the framed print of New York City firefighters at the ruins of the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001, are assistant fire chief Richard Columbo (left) and chief Mike Zamantakis. The town's mayor and council members also commended the department for its public safety service over the years. Mayor Dean Armstrong noted that the training and certification of the department have lowered the city's residential and commercial insurance rates, producing a savings for homeowners and businesses. Zamantakis said that over the years, volunteer firefighters have been required to take the same courses in urban and wild land fire fighting and emergency medical treatment as full-time professionals.
