Farmington Assistant Fire Chief Jeffrey Allbee accepted the Dakota Spirit of Excellence award recently at a ceremony at the fire station with family and friends in attendance.
Allbee is the winner of this inaugural award developed by Dakota Electric Association to recognize first responders and the brave work they do. The award highlights a first responder who demonstrates leadership, dedication to serving others, teamwork, integrity and other attributes.
Fire Chief Jim Larsen speaks highly of Allbee and said he is very committed to his volunteer work with the fire department. He has served as a firefighter since 2006 and is president of the Farmington Firefighters Relief Association, helped organize the Fire Prevention Week open house, and has helped create core values and mission and vision statements for the department.
