2018 Annual Awards


On December 17, 2018, we held our annual holiday dinner graciously hosted by our wonderful friends at the Nepenthe Restaurant. The dinner is a great time to get together as the year winds down and an opportunity to honor our annual award winners.   Each year we typically honor a “Volunteer of the Year”, a “Rookie of the Year”, an “Engine Company of the Year”, and a special recognition known as the “Chiefs Award.”  As always, this year’s annual dinner was a great success with a wonderful turnout from Big Sur Fire members, family, friends, and members of our Board of Directors.  Thanks to all who attended along with special thanks to the Nepenthe Restaurant staff and General Manager Kirk Gafill for their wonderful hospitality.







Each year Big Sur Fire honors one of its members who has made an outstanding contribution to emergency service, the community, and Big Sur Fire.  This year we honor one of our members whose contribution has been exemplary.  It is with great pleasure to announce that the 2018 Volunteer of the Year award goes to Fabian Perez.



Proclamation – 2018 Volunteer of the Year – Fabian Perez














Being a volunteer requires dedication of mind, body, and spirit as well as a significant contribution of time and energy.  It is so rare to find all of these attributes in one individual right at the start of their career.  It is with great pleasure that we recognize Lyle Southall as the 2018 “Rookie of the Year.”
