Capital City Fire/Rescue
Credentials: Firefighter 1, EMT 1
District: Auke Bay
Employer: Pavitt Health and Fitness
How long with the fire service: 2 years
Reason for joining the fire service: I enjoy the rewarding aspect of being able to help people during difficult times. In addition, I see volunteering as an effective way to learn the skills required to become a career Firefighter/EMT, a goal I plan to achieve.
Reasons for continued service: My favorite aspect of the fire department is being part of a family that instills traditions, dedication and pride within each other. I am privileged to be able to learn and work alongside career and volunteer CCFR firefighters and EMTs who have years of experience and knowledge and are willing to take their time to share that knowledge.
Reason nominated: Shaun is always the first one looking to help out in any way possible. He takes full advantage of all training opportunities available to him and is willing to help the instructors. Volunteers like Shaun are hard to come by and he has set a high bar of standards for present and future volunteers to emulate. We look forward to him progressing in the fire service and becoming an officer so he can lead by example on what a true "professional" volunteer is.
