Lieutenant Marc F. Futia
Lieutenant Marc F. Futia received Elsmere Fire Company's Firefighter of the Year award at a ceremony hosted by Nathaniel Adams Blanchard Post No. 1040 on March 3, 2014.
Lieutenant Futia was cited for his rescue of an elderly female from a serious structure fire on New Scotland Road in Slingerlands in September 2013. Although the fire victim did subsequently succumb to her injuries, she was alive when Elsmere Lieutenant Futia, Slingerlands Firefighter Ryan McConky and Slingerlands Chief Brian Sleurs removed her from the burning structure. Lieutenant Marc Futia, who was working in the area at the time the structure fire was reported, grabbed turnout gear from the first arriving Slingerlands engine to arrive at the scene, and accompanied Slingerlands firefighters who entered the building and effected a successful rescue. Congratulations to Elsmere Fire Lieutenant Marc Futia and the Slingerlands firefighters for a job well done. Click Here to Read Letter of Nomination.
