Veteran Volunteer Firefighter Recognized for Commitment to Safety and Service During OSU Football Game
THOMAS, Okla. — Larry Schrock of Thomas, Okla. was recognized as the Enable Midstream Safety Partner at the Oklahoma State University football game on Saturday, Oct. 3. The award recognizes a local emergency responder that embodies Enable Midstream Partners’ values of safety, integrity, accountability, customer service, results driven and teamwork.
“At Enable Midstream, we work in close partnership with local emergency responders in our areas of operation to help keep the public safe while protecting our operations,” said Senior Vice President Operations and EH&S Paul Brewer. “Enable Midstream is a partner in the success of the communities where we live and operate. We are proud to recognize Larry for his commitment to safety and service to his community.”
Schrock is fire chief for the Thomas Volunteer Fire Department and a small business owner and operator. He consistently makes his community’s safety and well being a priority. Schrock has remained committed to improving his department by updating the crew’s personal protection equipment, replacing aged trucks and ensuring proper training for all members in his department. He has also helped make his community safer by providing fire safety trainings at local schools and churches.
During power outages in the winter, Schrock spends time helping residents get their generators running to ensure they have a warm place to stay. In 2013, during the extreme summer drought, Schrock volunteered himself and his department to assist other area volunteer fire departments to help fight grass fires.
