Bildzok is Imlay City 'Firefighter of Year'


Steve Bildzok is peers' choice for 2018


December 12, 2018
IMLAY CITY — Imlay City firefighters celebrated the holidays and an outstanding firefighter at Saturday's (Dec. 8) Firefighters' Family Christmas Party.

Along with socializing among the firefighters and their families, attendees enjoyed food, beverages and a visit from Santa Claus.

While Santa's appearance got most of the kids' attention, the evening's major highlight was the announcement of Imlay City's "Firefighter of the Year."

Fire Chief Rick Horton said that honor went to Fire Lt. Steve Bildzok, II, whose contributions to the fire department have been integral.

"Lieutenant Bildzok has taken his new officer position very seriously and is doing a fine job," said Horton. "I have watched Steve grow as a firefighter and I expect the same to continue as a fire officer.

"The last couple of years have been very eventful for Steve," Horton continued. "He got married, became a father, then a fire officer and now has been named Firefighter of the Year by his peers.

"Our firefighters have taken notice of Steve, as have our other officers," he said.

"Along with Steve getting Firefighter of the Year and a visit from Santa Claus for the children, we had some really good food and a chance to sit down and talk with our fire department families," Horton said. "It was a great time."
