Congratulations 2020 Service Award Recipients!
FIREFIGHTER OF THE YEAR: Firefighter / Paramedic Greg Brignone
Although Greg has not been with Farmington Fire too long, he has shown some extreme commitment and has really stepped up to make himself available in the year 2020. Greg has been able to cover the open shift at short notice far more than his “fair share.”
Greg CONSISTENTLY brings a good attitude to work. The leadership group, as well as others notice this. Often his cheerful spirit becomes contagious and spreads throughout the duty crew. The work ethic and positive assertiveness that Greg exhibits makes him a real asset to the team.
Greg also finished his paramedic schooling in 2020 and now wears the red patch. Greg has an obvious passion for EMS as well. Quite an accomplishment Greg! Well Done Sir!
-Captain Christopher Winter
Jeff has done an excellent job as Engineer. I can always count on him doing his duties with high quality. Jeff always comes to work with a smile and a great attitude. Jeff takes an active role when it comes to training our newer firefighters, without being asked.
-Captain Jay Barnum
OFFICER OF THE YEAR: Captain / AEMT Rich Love
In addition to serving the Farmington City Fire Department for over thirty-five years, Captain Love demonstrated strong leadership throughout the global COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. Captain Love ensured workplace COVID-19 expectations were met, thus ensuring the safety and well-being of employees and customers was achieved. As one of our training officers, Captain Love also played an intricate role during the testing and hiring new candidates. Captain Love continues to maintain employee’s firefighter certifications and renewals as required by the Utah Fire & Rescue Academy. On a personal note, I greatly appreciate Rich’s long term service to FFD and continuous desire to help with special projects all the while making himself available when requested.

Utah COVID-19 Vaccine Information
To help keep Utahns informed about the vaccine, to educate them about its importance, and to keep the public up to date with the latest information about COVID-19 and Utah’s vaccination plan, the state of Utah COVID-19 Response Team is starting an email series.
- Encourage residents to sign up to receive Utah vaccine updates at this link: https://coronavirus.utah.gov/vaccine/#sign-up.
Vaccinations are critical to ending the pandemic, but it will take several months to get enough vaccines to make them broadly available to all Utahns. The vaccine is the pathway to getting back to normal.
The go-to Utah source for COVID-19 vaccine information is this website: https://coronavirus.utah.gov/vaccine.
Helpful, current articles about vaccine effectiveness and safety can be found here: https://coronavirus.utah.gov/blog/#.
