Chief Anthony Welman said Tolliver is always on hand to help, doing many tasks, such as cleaning up around the firehouse, even when it does not seem necessary.
"If you called him at two o'clock, four, five in the morning, whatever it may be, he always helped you," Welman said.
The EMS responder of the year was Rob Patrylak.
The administrative person of the year was Mary Hickman. Administrative Captain Connie Weissert said Hickman can always be found doing work and knows everything about the company's kitchen.
"She just quietly goes about her business, doing the best job possible in the kitchen," Weissert said.
The Jim Warner Award, named after a former company treasurer, went to First Vice President Donald Thomas, who recently retired from duty.
Shrodes told Thomas: "I hope other folks in this company look up to you, and I know they will."
Shrodes said he wanted to thank everyone in all the fire companies.
"You save the taxpayers so much money," he said.
Glassman also said Thomas has been involved in other firefighter associations.
"I thank you for the countless hours you put in," Glassman told him. "I don't think a lot of folks know how much you do, but I do, and God bless you."
The fire company's year was memorable for helping Port Deposit deal with flooding after Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee, holding a ceremony for its new Sept. 11 memorial and handling events like the new Zombie Run.
Welman said the company placed its rescue truck in full capacity by helping Port Deposit for three days.
"I wish continued success for 2012," he said.
EMS Chief Jason Gullion also said: "This past year was definitely a challenge."
Gullion said the company reduced its average response time to 3.5 minutes and dropped its "no-shows" to "almost nothing."
Michael Vincent added: "We were lucky in such a bad economy to sell the old Dublin firehouse."
Weissert said the most memorable event was the9/11memorial dedication in front of the firehouse.
"The event was something the company felt strongly about, to honor our heroes who lost their lives on that day," she said.
