AVFD Member Dylan Bernetich Honored for Saving a Life

by AVFD · 1 comment

In August 2016, our very own Dylan Bernetich put his volunteer firefighter training to the test and saved another teen’s life.

On September 12, 2016, we presented him with a Citation of Merit and a pin for his uniform and, on September 20, 2016, Avon Public Schools held a special reception to honor Dylan for his bravery and heroism. WFSB Channel 3 Eyewitness News covered the story – below is the news clip.

The AVFD is beyond proud of Dylan’s efforts and is lucky to have him on our team.

Dylan,
Just learned of your story, very proud of you. The will to act, the presence of mind to do what is necessary. That is what it is all about. Congratulations. Well done.
