GASTONIA, N.C. - The Gastonia Fire Department would like to recognize Firefighter Dalton Jenkins on receiving the Sandy Powell Memorial Award at the North Carolina State Breathing Equipment School.

The school was established in 1996 and is held at the Regional Emergency Service Training Center on the campus of Gaston College in Dallas, N.C. The course sees firefighters from several states come together for a grueling weeklong program designed to teach firefighter safety and survival techniques. Throughout the week candidates are tested physically and mentally through multiple obstacles, and at the end of the week a graduation is held.

Course instructors from across the state come together to recognize one student for showing dedication, determination, and a commitment to success, and that person is awarded the Sandy Powell Memorial Award.

The award is named after Firefighter Sandy Powell, who was the first female to complete the school in 2001, and sadly perished in the line of duty while working for the McLeansville Fire Department in 2002.

Firefighter Jenkins participated in the school from October 8-12, 2018, and is the first member of the Gastonia Fire Department to receive the award.
