The Sun City West Fire District honored 46 people Tuesday who volunteered their time in 2010 to help keep the community and its residents healthier and safer.

At the annual appreciation breakfast in honor of Volunteer Appreciation Week, the district thanked its fire corps members for providing services such as blood pressure screenings, lockbox installations and maintenance, smoke alarm checks, installations and battery changes, injury prevention presentations, fire extinguisher training, and administrative assistance.

During 2010, fire corps members volunteered approximately 2,624 hours with the district, providing an answer to non-emergency calls for service, which qualified the group for a President’s Volunteer Gold Service Award.
