City of Lehi
LEHI — Lehi Fire Capt. Jake Beck recently received the Firefighter of the Year Award from the Utah Valley Chapter of the National Exchange Club. He was honored at the club meeting on Nov. 28 in Orem.
“This is a great accomplishment for Jake and for the city,” said Mayor Bert Wilson. “He has gone far above and beyond what is expected and the citizens of Lehi are the ones who benefit.”
The Utah Valley Chapter of the National Exchange Club requests nominations from every city in Utah County. A selection committee then reviews the applicants and selects the honoree for criteria including exemplary efforts in contributing to the community, going beyond the call of duty in their position, and passing advanced training.
Beck has served as the Lehi Fire Department’s training officer. In addition to organizing everyday trainings, he has helped with a number of specialized areas including burn house, acquired live structure burns, driver training task books, air ambulance, technical rescue, FrontRunner and MAYDAY.
“Captain Beck has excelled beyond our expectations and does more than his job description requires,” said Fire Chief Dale Ekins. “We appreciate his efforts and dedication to the community.”
