City Manager Jim Scholl and Fire Chief Michael Davila, during a recent city commission meeting, honor two members of the Fire Department for 20 years of service. Both men were presented with gold watches.

Alan Averette and Danny Galvan both joined the Key West Fire Department in September of 1998. 

“They both provide great leadership and exceptional service and are examples of what the Key West Fire Department stands for: Serving and Protecting the citizens and guests of our island,” said Chief Davila. “They have worked their whole careers to improve the quality of service our department provides to save lives and protect property.”

Galvan is a line officer, providing firefighting expertise on 24-hour shifts, working in high stress situations and dealing with emergencies to provide the best possible outcomes.

Averette is the Division Chief of Operations, working administratively to ensure the men and women of the Fire Department have the equipment and manpower necessary to provide the protection this community deserves.

“Congratulations to both Danny and Alan for your 20 years of service in the Key West Fire Department,” Davila said.
