Fred Searls, Community Image and Affairs Committee member, presents Richard Oglesby, Ottawa Fire Department Assistant Fire Chief, with the Ottawa Area Chamber of Commerce’s Quarterly Image Award Wednesday at Prairie Star Catering, 1001 E. Logan St., Ottawa. Oglesby accepted the award on behalf of the Ottawa Fire Department, which received the honor for its non-profit public service. Oglesby said the award also was to recognize the department’s work during the February house fire at 800 S Main St., Ottawa, which severely damaged the home of the Kelley family. “It is a great honor for the department,” Oglesby said. “There were a lot of people who worked really hard that night who were out in the cold, and they endured for a long time. It is great to have someone telling you that you are doing a good job for your service.”
