John E. "Sunny" Rose, Jr., Memorial Training Award

 

Purpose of Award -To recognize an individual who dedicates the most hours to Fire, EMS, and Rescue

training during the year

 

Award Sponsor - Odenton Volunteer Fire Company

 

Award Administered by - Training Committee of the Maryland State Firemen's Association

 

Background - John E. "Sunny" Rose Jr. joined the Odenton Volunteer Fire Company in 1963 and was an

active member of the company until his death in 201S. Sunny served in many positions with the company including as a line officer, board member, and numerous committees. Sunny's true passion throughout his fire service career was for Fire, EMS, and Rescue training. He started as a Field Instructor for the Maryland Fire and Rescue institute (MFRi) in 1977, and over his thirty-eight years as a MFRI Field Instructor, Sunny taught countless training classes across the State of Maryland and coached and mentored many aspiring instructors. It was not unusual to find Sunny teaching a class in one region of the state during the day, picking up a support vehicle from MFRI in the afternoon, and then teaching another class in a different region that evening. It is in recognition of his untiring demeanor and dedication to training, that the Odenton Volunteer Fire Company is proud to sponsor the John E. "Sunny" Rose Memorial Award to be awarded each year at the annual convention of the Maryland State Firemen's Association to an individual who has dedicated the most hours to Fire, EMS, and Rescue training in the previous year.  This award was approved by the Maryland State Firemen's Association Executive Committee on September 20, 2015
