September 18, 2007

State Sen. Jay Costa (D-Allegheny) was recently honored with the “Service Award” by the Western Pennsylvania Firemen's Association at its 2007 Convention, at the Universal Fire Company in Penn Hills.

The Service Award is presented each year to a legislator or official who has distinguished him or herself in service to fire companies. The association President, John Palcey, presented the award to Senator Costa at a ceremony on August 14.

“I am honored and humbled by this recognition from the Western Pennsylvania Firemen's Association,” Sen. Costa said. “The Service Award is of special significance to me because I have always worked hard to assist the fire companies in my district. I will continue to work with all departments that I represent to ensure that they have the tools that they need to continue to protect our citizens.”

In addition, Rich Leone, president of the Universal Fire Company, presented Senator Costa with a plaque in appreciation of the Senator's support of the convention, which was the 114th Annual event.

“I am pleased that the Western Pennsylvania Firemen's Association chose the Universal Fire Company to host this year's Convention, and I commend Rich Leone and all the people at Universal on a job well done,” Sen. Costa said.
