The Mike Shaw, Pride of La Verne Award, is awarded to an exemplary employee of the Fire Department each year. Mike Shaw was a special member of the La Verne Fire Department. Prior to his untimely death, Mike left a memory that will never be forgotten.  He was always an “up” person and willing to work whenever needed and gave a lot of extra energy and time to the job. Additionally, his coworkers always enjoyed working with Mike as his happy attitude was contagious and made the job less stressful. He was an excellent firefighter and a valued friend.  In the words of his fellow firefighters, “He made all of us better people just by being himself and sharing his joy for life.” As such, Captain Sam Dominick is your 2021 La Verne Fire Department Mike Shaw award winner. Captain Dominick strives each day to provide the highest level of leadership to those under his command and is exceptionally successful at doing so. He is currently administratively assigned as the department’s training Captain, solely focused on orchestrating the complex logistics of implementing our new Ambulance Operator positions and the positions needed to reopen fire station 3. His optimistic and passionate attitude are infectious and inspirational to all ranks every single day. In addition to department training, Sam also takes the lead on the “Spark of Love” holiday toy drive, the department’s EMS program, the fire explorer program, rookie Firefighter academies and also represents the La Verne Fire Department as a fire academy instructor at the local college fire academy. Congratulations, Captain Dominick. Thank you for carrying on Mike Shaw’s profound legacy and desire to “leave the department better than you found it”. ... See MoreSee Less
