On Wednesday, May 23, 2018, President Paul Koch traveled to the Miller Senate Building in Annapolis to receive a Maryland Star of Life Award from the Maryland Institute for Emergency Medical Service Systems (MIEMSS). This award is very prestigious that few have had the opportunity to receive. President Koch also received a Unit Citation at the Southern Maryland Volunteer Fireman's Association.

On April 26, 2017, the Breton Bay community was disrupted when a H-60 helicopter came crashing down on Hole #3 on the Breton Bay Golf Course. Many civilians ran to the aid; one person was ejected, one person was heavily pinned, and one person succumbed to their injuries. It was a sad time in the community, and many people came together for the Army Base in Fort Belvoir, VA. Later in the year, a memorial stone was placed where that horrific crash once was to remember Jeremy Tomlin, who lost his life that day. The other two passengers, who had a long road of recovery, are grateful for everyone's quick response. They had severe injuries and were both flown in critical condition to the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, MD. Other departments receiving the award were Leonardtown VFD, Leonardtown VRS, and Hollywood VRS.

Pictured below are the men and women who also received awards with Lt. Governor Rutherford and Executive Directors from MIEMSS.
