On July 15, the City of Rowlett held an appreciation celebration for the cities that responded to the Christmas tornado aftermath on December 26, 2015. The Addison Fire Department responded that evening with an engine and battalion. Addison Fire Department’s Lieutenant Zach Crase and Firefighter/Paramedic Bradley Nelson were both on that response team and received an appreciation plaque on behalf of the AFD. The plaque is made from wood found after the devastation, so this is an honor and something the AFD can proudly display at the station. Congratulations and thank you for your service!
