[ARCHIVED] Aloha American Legion Honors Colin O’Reardon as its Firefighter of the Year


Aloha American Legion Post 104 presented its Firefighter of the Year award on May 5 to Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue Firefighter Colin O’Reardon of Station 62 in Aloha.

The annual award honors a firefighter who goes above and beyond what is expected and shown a distinct pattern of community service and professional achievement. O’Reardon, who joined TVF&R’s team in 2006, has exceeded those requirements.

During his nine years of service with TVF&R, O’Reardon has been recognized by the District for his stellar work ethic as a firefighter paramedic, outstanding commitment to service and willingness to mentor new firefighters as a training officer for the 2014 Recruit Academy.

His positive attitude, hard work, attention to detail on emergency calls and motivation to seek out training and professional growth opportunities make him a valuable member of the Station 62 crew.

In a letter announcing the American Legion award, Post Adjutant Cory Brockman stated, “Your sense of commitment and duty to the Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue district in which you serve and our community are commendable. Thank you for your service. We are proud of you, and proud to recognize you as our Firefighter of the Year!”

As the recipient of the Aloha Post 104 Firefighter of the Year for 2015, O’Reardon is now a candidate for the American Legion Department of Oregon’s Firefighter of the Year award. The winner of the state honor will be announced in the fall.
