Ramona VFW honors firefighter/paramedic

Ramona Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 3783 Commander Doug Scholl presents a certificate of appreciation to Fire Apparatus Engineer/Paramedic Shawn Warcup of Cal Fire/Ramona Fire Department.

The VFW honored Warcup for his actions on June 26, 2013, during a structure fire with an explosion on Ashley Road. Lifetime VFW member Carroll Harris suffered burns as a result of the fire that evening.

Warcup acted quickly in treating and preparing Mr. Harris for air transport to the burn center. Although Mr. Harris eventually died of his injuries, the Ramona VFW Post recognized what it called Warcup’s undaunted efforts by donating $300 to the San Diego Burn Institute in honor of Mr. Harris.
