The near-arrival of spring during the first few days of March has also brought along, for both the JFRD and our community, the official proclamation of the Firefighter of the Year for 2020. In a statement sent out Department-wide on Monday, the first of March, Directore/Fire Chief Keith Powers publically announced and congratulated Lieutenant Mike Belcher of Engine 29 - "C" for being selected for our Department's highest award. Lieutenant Belcher was chosen for risking his life to save a child from a horrific residential structure fire, a classic example of the selfless action firefighters will engage in to protect lives and property throughout their respective communities. Congratulations, Lieutenant Belcher!
