And the winner of the Public Safety Hero of the Quarter is…

Justin Smith – Fort Plain Fire Department, GAVAC, and Montgomery County Deputy EMS Coordinator!!

Justin wins a $200 gift card from 1st on Scene Fire & Emergency Services.

Below is the nomination that was submitted for Justin:

Justin Smith is a member of the Fort Plain Fire Department, he has been a member since he turned 14 years old and was a junior member. He is now the training officer and provides training for his fellow members. His goal is to provide quality important updated training to keep his fellow firefighters safe. Justin is also a Paremedic with GAVAC. He is a hard worker and continually takes extra classes and takes extra hours when asked. He has received a life saving award from GAVAC and he loves his job. Justin is also a Deputy Coordinator for EMS of Montgomery County. He continually responds to emergencies throughout the County to assist other agencies in an attempt to keep all safe and healthy. The unique thing about Justin is that he is only 21 years old. He has an associates degree from SUNY Cobleskill and continues to work hard with learning as much as he can. It is rare to see a young person so dedicated to a profession and service. I am proud to have Justin as my son and work with me at many different types of emergency scenes including as a fellow firefighter. Please consider Justin for this award as he is a hero and deserves it. Thank you!
