November Wolf Den of Heroes Inductee: Kelly Tomasulo of the Millbrook Fire Department
Another month has come to an end, but don't think we forgot about our Wolf Den of Heroes! We need to add another first responder to our Gallery of Heroes.
Let's give a big round of applause and congratulations to Kelly Tomasulo of the Millbrook Fire Department.
November Wolf Den of Heroes Inductee: Kelly Tomasulo
A fellow Millbrook firefighter, Brian Hicks nominated Kelly and wrote the following nomination:
I am nominating Kelly Tomasulo from the Millbrook Fire Department for the local hometown hero. She is our number one responder for our entire fire company. There is rarely a call that she misses.
Kelly was our firefighter of the year this year due to her fierce dedication and willingness to give up her time to help others. She is also a teacher in our middle school as well as a mother and a wife.
I believe she’s a trailblazer showing that women can accomplish anything that they set their mind to as she is an interior fire fighter and she does everything she can for her community.
She not only fights fires, helps people at EMS calls but devotes her time to creating a positive atmosphere within the department by running picnics and dinners for the company. The community has grown to know and love her because she is the first person to walk into a scene and offer comfort and care.
You can tell from Brian's nomination that Kelly is an important part to the Millbrook Fire Department and the Millbrook community.
We spoke with Kelly who told us that while it was great to be honored as a Wolf Den Hero, she made sure to tell us "It's not just a me thing, it's a we thing" and that she wouldn't be where she is without her fellow firefighters.
All Wolf Den of Heroes inductees receive a $250 Visa Gift Card from our friends at Mental Health America of Dutchess County as a token of our appreciation. Kelly tells us she will use the gift card to get the rest of the firefighters a nice dinner!
