On Tuesday, June 19 while members were attending the Maryland State Fireman’s Association (MSFA) in Ocean City Maryland one of our own, Melvin Tennyson was awarded the Silver Spring Trophy for his contribution to our fire prevention program with the “Smoke Alarm Project”. The smoke alarm project has two parts, the first part is the members of the department pick a high-risk neighborhood and go door to door and ask the residents if they have working smoke alarms, if they have alarms we offer to test hem for free. If the resident does NOT have working smoke alarms, we offer to install them in their home for FREE. This program has been a huge success for several years. The second part is on our website ( residents can submit a request if they need smoke alarms in their home and Melvin will provide and install them for FREE.

The Silver Spring Trophy was established in 1981 by the Silver Spring Volunteer Fire Department and accepted by the Executive Committee. This award is presented each year at the MSFA Annual Convention to an individual who does the most in fire prevention for his/her community. The award is for an individual effort and, therefore, submission of the entry must be for one individual rather than a group or department effort. The intent of the award is to recognize fire prevention activities which the individual performs within his/her community. The trophy is held by the individual for one year and then passed on. The winner will receive an individual plaque for permanent possession.

The members of Bay District offer our thanks and congratulations to Melvin for this prestigious award and his contribution to our fire prevention program.
