Greenville first responders honored in ceremony

Posted: Updated:

Greenville first responders accepted honors last night at the Annual Chamber of Commerce appreciation dinner.

Lt. Nick Lucas and Lt. Matthew McMahon received the "2013 Law Enforcement Officer and Firefighter of the Year" awards respectively.

Both have been with their departments for 16 years.

We caught up with McMahon on Wednesday. He helped to cut down on response times with a text messaging and mapping system for firefighters.

"The fire service has always been a calling for me. Over the last few years though, the communication part of the fire service has been a hobby of mine for years. My father was in the military and did that so it kind of runs in the family," McMahon said.

The appreciation dinner is a tradition in the community dating back to 1985.
