2015 Phoenix Award

The Phoenix Award is the highest level of award issued by the Fire Department to a civilian. It is issued to a person who goes above and beyond , who displays extreme courage and heroism in a life and death situation and whose actions directly result in the saving of another human life.

Pembroke Pines Fire Rescue awarded this year's Phoenix award to Greg Saladino for his efforts in helping to save the life of a 2 year old neighbor who was in cardiac arrest secondary to choking on a grape. Mr. Saladino, a retired Hollywood Police Officer, performed CPR on the child while Pembroke Pines Fire Rescue crews responded. His efforts directly resulted in the clearing of the airway obstruction and return of spontaneous circulation. The child was transported to the hospital and released a few days later after a complete recovery.

New Firefighters - Class 52

After a tough seven week recruit training program, Pembroke Pines Fire Rescue is proud to welcome five new members to the rank of firefighter. Training consisted of a demanding physical fitness regimen each morning followed by classroom lectures and practical evolutions. Topics including fire behavior, forcible entry, search and rescue and vehicle extrication were just some of the many subjects covered during the course of their training.

These new recruits will now be assigned to shift work to serve alongside the men and women who proudly serve the residents of Pembroke Pines and its visitors. We wish them well on their future endeavors as they embark on their new career.
