Clark County, NV (KTNV) -- The Clark County Fire Department had several reasons to celebrate on Monday.
An event was held to honor firefighters and community partners whose actions over the last year deserve special recognition.
The ceremony also marked the fire department's 60th anniversary.
"This is just the way we kick off a year-long celebration of 60 years of service to the residents and visitors of Clark County," said Fire Chief Bertral Washington.
The Clark County Fire Department was formally organized on Nov. 23, 1953.
Before that, volunteer firefighters served our community.
