When  Daniel Rakes' name was drawn as the winner of a Fire Prevention Week in a Box at the recent Virginia Regional Remembering When training, the room erupted with responses from the other 70 or-so attendees that made it clear that Daniel was well known for something.  Turns out that he's well known for being the Roanoke Fire Marshal.  And it appears it he also known, now, for his kindness.  Fire Marshal Rakes took to the stage and asked for a show of hands until he identified a representative from the smallest fire department that was in attendance, and then he re-gifted his prize.  And the winner is . . . Martinsville Fire and EMS!
