Dave Seng, a volunteer firefighter serving the Auke Bay district, has been chosen as the volunteer of the month for June. Seng has been volunteering for a year and a half. He joined the firefighters to give something back to the community.
His colleagues said he was nominated because he always has a smile on his face no matter how much he is sweating, and is a great positive influence on the department.
He says, "I enjoy the hard work and the feeling like we've accomplished something good when we're called upon."
Along with the regular drills and training, Seng recently took on learning how to operate the fire engines. In his spare time, he helped with the Firefighter I Academy and joined the special teams.
