The Manitowoc Noon Rotary Club has announced their picks for the Firefighter and Citizen of the Year for 2017. Brad Olivera and Rose Fichtner were named Firefighter of the Year and Citizen of the Year respectively. Olivera was nominated by an unnamed Fire Department Captain, after Olivera stepped up, made a difference and saved lives during two off-duty incidents. Fichtner was an unsung hero during the Parkview Haven apartment fire back in May, when she noticed the smoke, and pulled the alarm. She then went door to door knocking and alerting people to get out. When crews arrived, they could hear her on the third floor, continuing to alert people, even as the smoke became more and more thick. Both were honored yesterday at a Rotary Club luncheon banquet.
