A Blackfoot firefighter received the Idaho Medal of Honor on Friday for his efforts during a 2016 rescue attempt.
Blackfoot Fire Department Capt. Dave Krumenacker was honored during the Idaho Fallen Firefighter Memorial Ceremony in Boise. The award was the state’s highest honor for firefighters, law enforcement officers and EMS providers.
“It is a little bit overwhelming Krumenacker, born in American Falls and a 40-year veteran, said. ”Of course, I was honored by this, but I have to say this is not just for me. This is something that the entire department deserves. It’s not for just one person, we all share in this award.”
