Nine volunteer firefighters and one career firefighter from the Napa County Fire Department were recognized for their dedication and commitment to the community at a dinner Wednesday hosted at the Yountville Station. 

Each year, nine volunteer companies along with CAL FIRE/Napa County Fire’s paid/career staff, select a “Firefighter of the Year.”

“It’s an honor to recognize these individuals for their service and dedication to the Napa County Fire Department and their communities,” said Napa County Fire Chief Scott Upton.

Volunteer firefighters Austin Simpson from Carneros, Scott Skowronski from Soda Canyon, Sandy Storck from Capell Valley, Davie Pina from Rutherford, Franco Rodriguez from Dry Creek/Lokoya, Jonathan Aguilar from Angwin, Yadir Payan from Pope Valley, Nick Curtain from Deer Park, James and April George from Gordon Valley; and career/paid staff firefighter, Tim Hoyt from CAL FIRE/Napa County Fire Department.
