Volunteer firefigther for the month of August

Name: Steve Anderson


Credentials: Firefighter I, EMT I

District: Auke Bay

Employer: REACH

How long with the fire service: 1 year

Why did you join the fire service?: I joined the fire service out of the respect I’ve always felt for firefighters, especially after 9/11, and I wanted to be a part of the brotherhood that seemed to occur in the fire service.

Favorite Aspect of the fire service: My favorite thing about the fire service is the satisfaction I feel when I help those in some if their greatest times of need.

Reason nominated: Anderson has grown tremendously this year both as a firefighter and as an upcoming leader. Recently, he has stepped to the plate as the “house mom” at Auke Bay. He has also gained a lot of confidence by greatly increasing his responses in which he has been first on scene.
