For The Vista
The Fairfield Glade Fire Department has announced that Captain Bob Bennett has been named the 2013 Firefighter of the year.
This award exemplifies professionalism and a dedication to service in our community, and was very well received when it was announced at our Fire Department Banquet.
Bennett joined the Department in 2002. Bob took the Tennessee State basic 64-hour “Firefighter 1” classes and training, and after completing and passing all the basic requirements, he then signed up to go through the State Fire Academy and complete the live burn training course of 22 hours.
He was with the second group of Fairfield Glade firefighters to go through the State Fire Academy live burn training.
Bennett has worked hard and is a dedicated fire fighter.
In 2004 he became a lieutenant and a few years later in 2006 he became a Captain.
He continues to train and work hard so he can better serve the community, and everyone appreciates Bennett for his continuing service and dedication to the Fairfield Glade Fire Department.
