Buffalo Grove Firefighter/Paramedic (FF/PM) Scott Renshaw was named the Buffalo Grove Rotary 2018 Firefighter of the Year and received the honor at the April 15, 2019 Village Board meeting. 

While he is a relative newcomer to the Buffalo Grove Fire Department, FF/PM Renshaw has demonstrated the dedication and involvement to be extremely worthy of this recognition. He was nominated by his peers to receive the award.  

“During his time with the Buffalo Grove Fire Department, FF/PM Renshaw has demonstrated an unwavering positive attitude toward both fellow firefighters and citizens in the community,” said Fire Chief Mike Baker. “He has been called upon numerous times to go above and beyond normal duty assignments and has participated in a wide variety of activities that have enhanced the Department and our mission in many ways.”

FF/PM Renshaw was recognized during the meeting for assistance he provided in building a ramp for a disabled Village resident, coordinating a major remodeling project at Fire Station 25, and spending numerous hours performing the skilled labor necessary to complete the work. 

He is also involved in the Water Rescue Team, the Northwest Community Hospital Research and Development Committee, Paramedic Education, as well as the Driving Committee and Safety Committee.

“It is for all of these reasons that FF/PM Scott Renshaw has been selected for the Buffalo Grove Rotary 2018 Firefighter of the Year award,” Baker said.
