To honor lifelong firefighter Ron Wentzel’s service to the community the Keystone Chapter of Fire Service Instructors presented Wentzel’s family with the Keystone Education Award in his honor last evening. Wentzel spent years serving has a deputy fire chief, police chief and EMT, before passing away last January from brain cancer.
“Oh it is really exciting because I know Ronnie would be so proud. He devoted his life to helping others and he loved teaching. His life was those fireman and protecting the people of the communities,” said Dianne Wentzel, Ron Wentzel’s widow. The KEY Award is the highest award the organization can give to a fellow instructor. Organizers say Wentzel was chosen not only for his years of service, but also because he had a knack for teaching. “Ron worked real well with the students. He meshed real well with them and always got the best out of his students,” said Steve Dragon, the eastern regional director of the Keystone Chapter of Fire Service Instructors.
Berks Fire Water Restorations is proud to call Ron, Moose, our friend. We had the honor of learning valuable fire service information from Moose and working with him on many projects.
