Dry Creek-Lokoya Volunteer Fire Department selects Napa County Firefighter of the Year
The Napa County Fire Department hosted its annual Firefighter of the Year ceremony this week. Stephen Marek was selected as Volunteer Firefighter of the Year for the Dry Creek-Lokoya Volunteer Fire Department by the members of the department.
Stephen has been a volunteer Firefighter with the Dry Creek -Lokoya Volunteer Fire Department since 2006. He has grown up around the fire service in Napa. His Uncle Joe Marek was a Captain for the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection and worked at the old Napa CDF Station on Jefferson Street. Stephen has served in the ranks of our fire department as a Firefighter, Engineer, Lieutenant and currently as Captain 16. Stephen works for Piner’s Ambulance and hopes to find a full-time career firefighting position.
The Dry Creek-Lokoya Fire Department response area covers 200 square miles encompassing the western hills of Napa Valley. This area is steep and accessible by few roads, so we locate our apparatus in strategic places within our district to optimize our response time to any given location.
