John P. Kalaman Respect for Law Awards

Each year one award is selected for the City of Centerville Police Department and one award is selected for the Washington Township Substation of the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office. Nominations are accepted from the peers of those eligible. All employees of the department are eligible, not just police officers.

City of Centerville Police Department

This year’s recipient is Records/Communications Specialist Amanda L. Holland. She was nominated by a fellow R/C specialist at the City of Centerville Police Department.

Amanda Holland spoke. She thanked the Kalaman and O’Toole families and she appreciates that the awards are still happening during this chaotic year.

She said, “Everything we do in dispatch is a team effort.” Being selected for this award is a big deal to her. She understands the sacrifices of officers and their families. Her husband is an officer for the City of Franklin. She helps new Records/Communications (dispatchers) employees understand how important their job is.

Holland introduced her husband and her 3-year-old daughter, Ella. Also attending were her Mother, her Mother and Father-in-law and some friends.

Washington Township Substation of the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office

This year’s recipient is Deputy Shane Carter.

Deputy Carter has been assigned to the Washington Township sub-station as the Community Engagement Officer since 2019. Deputy Carter turned an old, unused trailer in the parking lot into a community resource trailer with plans to provide food & drinks at neighborhood events. Within months, the trailer served a much greater purpose after tornadoes devastated the Miami Valley Region. Deputy Carter mobilized the trailer as a resource to serve hot food and cold drinks to the areas most affected. He was later awarded a $10,000 grant to purchase and outfit a new trailer.  Deputy Carter has worked tirelessly to strengthen the relationship between the township and police as he took it upon himself to develop a Facebook page for residents to assist in setting up neighborhood watch groups.  He also participates in Super Saturday events and conducts security surveys for businesses and residents.

Deputy Carter spoke. He thanked his family and said that without his wife’s support he would not have been able serve his community at the level he has been able to. He also thanked Township Administrator Jesse Lightle and Sheriff Streck for their support.

Robert J. O’Toole EMT/Firefighter of the Year Award

This year’s recipient is Fire Lieutenant Jeff Joseph.

An active member of the Washington Township Fire Department for 31 years, Jeff now works part time for the department and is also a full-time employee at Wright Patterson Air Force Base. His positive attitude, energy, and passion make an enormous impact on the department, along with his broad range of skills accumulated over decades of experience. Jeff is constantly looking for ways to lighten the load of others, working a variety of assignments as needed and even bringing dinner for crews that he has cooked himself. According to Fire Chief Scott Kujawa, “Lt. Jeff Joseph exemplifies what it means to be a Washington Township firefighter.”

Lieutenant Joseph spoke. He remembers the awful day when the Robert O’Toole and John P. Kalaman were lost in the line of duty. For him personally, the experience of a line of duty death is something you never forget. It is an honor to receive this award and he thanked CNO and the department for honoring him.

Ruth O’Toole made a few comments after the group picture was taken. She said, “Thanks to the Optimist Club for keeping Bob’s memory alive. Thanks to everyone for being here today.”

About the CNO Awards from Bob Burkman

In July 1965, a discussion between Past Optimist International President Carl Bowen and former FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover resulted in the birth of the Respect for Law program. This is the fourth most popular international program with more than 1,500 Clubs participating last year.

After the tragic events of January 12, 1998, Centerville Noon Optimist member and then township trustee, the late, Terry Blair became the driving force to name our club’s Respect for Law Award in honor of John Kalaman. 

The John P. Kalaman Respect for Law Award and the Robert J. O’Toole EMT/Firefighter of the Year Award, given in October, are the results of Terry Blair’s efforts.

The Kalaman family pushed for the passage of Ohio’s Move Over/ Slow Down Law, adopted in 1999, requiring motorists to change lanes or slow when approaching stopped emergency vehicles. 

There are many reminders of John Kalaman within our community.  There is a John P Kalaman Memorial Golf Tournament held here at Yankee Trace Golf Course, which funds a scholarship in John’s name and a yearly blood drive is held in his name.  The City of Centerville named a street for him.

The Firefighter/EMT award honors the memory of Ruth and John’s son Robert J. O’Toole. Robert who lost his life on January 12, 1998 while responding to an accident.

Heavenly Father, all of us try to follow Your teachings to led the good life. Yet, all too many of us fall short and are detoured by life’s temptations, which allows hell into our lives. As a loving God, direct us in to the path You have prepared for us. At least motivate us to really study the Bible – It’ll “scare the hell out of us.”  Amen!

Robert J. O’Toole EMT/Firefighter of the Year Award

This year’s honoree and recipient of the “Robert J. O’Toole EMT/Firefighter of the Year Award” is Firefighter Joseph (Joe) Andrews. He is the 21st recipient of the award. Joe has been a part-time member of the Washington Township Fire Department since 2017. He is a full-time student studying Early Childhood Education at Clarke State University.

Bob Burkman started the ceremony. This annual award is to honor the memory of Ruth and John’s son Robert J. O’Toole. Robert lost his life on January 12, 1998 while responding to an accident.

Bob Burkman introduced Gary Anderson. Gary Anderson and Jesse Gaither produced the trifold on the tables.

You can read the trifold here.

Gary introduced the honored guests for today’s presentation: Ruth O’Toole; John and Paula Kalaman; Washington Township Fire Chief Scott Kujawa; Washington Township Administrator Jesse Lightle; Washington Township Fiscal Officer Gary Smiga; Montgomery County Deputy Sheriff Captain Mike Brem; the recipient’s mother Jackie Andrews; the recipient’s girlfriend Mikaela Pellerin.

Gary shared his memories and information of Robert J O’Toole. He knew him as Bobby. Bobby was a special boy that he and others couldn’t help but love. He had the good fortune of being Bobby’s principal from Kindergarten through 4th grade and again for 4 years of high school. He was born March 2, 1972 in Teaneck NJ to parents John and Ruth O’Toole. He started Kindergarten at Village South on August 30, 1977. He graduated High School on June 2, 1990.

His first-grade teacher once commented, “Bob is very shy around strangers, is anxious to read, and reads a lot at home.  Because of his short attention span he does not complete most assignments.”

Like so many students identified with a learning disability, Bobby had above average intelligence on School Ability Tests given in 2nd and 5th grades.

His 4th grade teacher once wrote on his report card “Robert needs to pay more attention in class and keep up with his daily assignments.  I feel he is much more capable than his work indicates.  Bob does not do daily assignments and does not know his multiplication tables.  Needs to use class time wisely.”

In November 1986 Bob took the Ohio Interest Survey Profile which showed his best liked career interest was humanitarian/caretaking. His favorite subject was Social Studies.

Bobby O’Toole gave his life in the line of duty doing what he loved and wanted to do. Gary couldn’t believe it has been 21 years already since this tragedy.

Next Gary Anderson introduced Washington Township Fire Chief Scott Kujawa.

Scott Kujawa said, “We have an unbelievable fire department. I am fortunate and thankful for the opportunity to serve in my current role. Every one of our members are committed to providing excellent service to the residents and visitors of our community. Today, we are fortunate to get to recognize one of our outstanding employees.”

He was honored and humbled to present today’s award. Scott and Robert J. O’Toole were in high school at the same time. He thanked the entire O’Toole family and the Optimist club for their continued support and remembrance of Firefighter O’Toole through the Robert J. O’Toole EMT/Firefighter of the Year Award.

Scott noted that today’s lunch was “Sloppy Joes”. He and others at their table wondered if that was on purpose with the recipient being Joe Andrews!

Scott discussed why Joe Andrews was chosen as this year’s recipient.

From Scott’s notes:

While at the firehouse, Joe is known for the compassion, positive attitude and integrity that he brings with him every shift. He recognizes what needs completed, does so without any prompting by his supervisor, and is truly a leader when it comes to accomplishing tasks in a timely fashion. During emergency calls and non-emergency events, Joe genuinely shows concern, compassion and empathy for the residents and visitors of our community. He engages our community members and employees with thought-provoking discussion and has excellent listening and communication skills.

The really cool thing about Joe is that he doesn’t want any recognition for his accomplishments. He simply believes that he is here to serve our community and do what’s right.  Firefighter Joseph Andrews truly embodies what it means to be a public servant.

Award recipient Joe Andrews spoke next.

He thanked Chief Scott Kujawa, the department, the O’Toole family and CNO for the award.

Joe remembers that on his first day at the department they visited the grave of Robert J. O’Toole. He found this moving. Robert must have been very inspirational that this still happens 21 years later which is how old Joe is.

He really likes the job, the people and the community.

Robert J. O’Toole EMT/Firefighter of the Year Award

This year’s honoree and recipient of the “Robert J. O’Toole EMT/Firefighter of the Year Award” is Firefighter and EMT Paul Conover. Paul joined the department in October of 2016 at the age of 23 and he is a resident of Centerville.

This award is to honor the memory of Ruth and John’s son Robert J. O’Toole. Robert lost his life January 12, 1998 after responding to an accident.

Bob Burkman gave details about the award and introduced Bill Gaul, the Washington Township Fire Chief and fellow CNO member. Bill thanked Gary Anderson for starting this award. He also thanked Ruth O’Toole for joining us today. Bill thanked the Centerville Noon Optimists for having this award each year.

For 28 years there is a firefighter memorial ceremony each year where now 71 names are read of fallen firefighters. The firefighters recognized are those that died in the line of duty since 1857. The ceremony has taken place for 28 years. They read a name and ring a bell and continue the process until all of the names have been read.

Also attending today’s lunch to watch Paul Conover receive his award were: Victoria Conover (mother), Sarah Dolle (fiancé), and Deputy Fire Chief Scott Kujawa.

Firefighter Paul Conover is an outstanding Firefighter/EMT who comes to work each shift with the drive and desire to learn and better himself. He is currently working to complete his paramedic certification while continuing to develop and improve his firefighting and EMS skills. Paul follows orders well, completes tasks promptly and efficiently and is always asking for additional assignments and projects. Paul is positive, upbeat, considerate and professional with his coworkers as well as members of the community. Recently Paul has taken on the responsibility of organizing a fire equipment stockroom and is in the process of cleaning and maintaining the equipment. Paul also assists with maintaining training records and hose records.

Firefighter Conover was awarded the 2018 Washington Township Part Time Employee Award of Excellence. The award is made annually to employees nominated by their peers who have made a valuable contribution to the mission of Washington Township.

Bill explained, “Paul has a true passion for his job. He also exhibits leadership skills. The reward is not just for people who have saved a life. I’m sure he will do something heroic, but at an early age it is great for him to be an asset to the department.”

Bill Gaul introduced Paul Conover and gave him his award.

It was mentioned that Paul Conover received his Eagle Scout rank in 2012. He is currently working on his  EMT paramedic certification.

More information about today’s award from Bob Burkman
Twenty-five year old Bob O’Toole always wanted to be a fireman. He was a part-time Firefighter/EMT with Centerville/Washington Township for four years and had just started part-time with Clearcreek Township in December 1997. With these 2 part-time jobs he considered himself a full timer. He was attending Sinclair Community College for Paramedic Training. His life was taken while in the service of our community, doing the job he loved. Bob O’Toole and John Kalaman’s names are forever linked, as a result of the tragic accident that took their lives.

The Tri-Fold on your table describes the events that lead to the deaths of Bob O’Toole and John Kalaman. It also mentions the late Optimist Terry Blair’s influence in establishing this award in 1998. Special thanks to Gary Anderson and Jesse Gaither at Minuteman Press for producing this tri-fold.

Today’s Washington Township Fire Department provides around the-clock emergency response with personnel who respond directly from five fire stations positioned strategically throughout Centerville/Washington Township. Shifts are supervised by five Battalion Chiefs and are staffed by more than 50 full-time firefighters, part-time emergency responders and part-time volunteers. Full-time firefighters are scheduled for 24-hour work shifts.
