CLERMONT COUNTY (FOX19) – On October 7, 2010, Captain Brian Gulat was awarded the State's first ever "Ohio Fire Service Instructor of the Year" award during a ceremony at the Ohio Department of Public Safety main office in Columbus. Captain Gulat was recognized for his outstanding contributions to fire and EMS training both here in Miami Township as well as his involvement in various training programs around the region.
Captain Gulat was chosen from among many nominees from fire departments across the State. As part of the selection process, the Awards Committee reviewed information about each nominee without knowing the names of the nominees. This is a particular honor in that this is the first year that such an award has been given.
"I am proud of Captain Gulat's accomplishments, and pleased that he has received statewide recognition for his expertise and efforts in developing, delivering and supporting quality training for fire fighters, emergency medical technicians, and the public," said Chief Jim Whitworth. "The impact of his contributions extends well beyond Miami Township, reaching many departments and communities throughout our region."
Captain Gulat has been a member of the Miami Township Fire and EMS since its creation in 1994, and served the community for many years prior to that as a member of the Miamiville Fire Department and the Milford-Miami Township Emergency Medical Service.
