Our Hometown Hero of the week is Rich Coats of Wake Forest.
He was nominated by Cheryl who says, “Rich has been with the Raleigh Fire Dept for 31 years. He volunteered for 8 years before that in his hometown in New York. Rich has dedicated his life to the fire service and in so doing has inspired his daughter to become a nurse and his 2 sons to also become a part of the fire service. They both currently are volunteers in Rolesville. One has graduated and the other is in the process of receiving his Bachelor Degree in Fire Safety Technology Engineering from UNC Charlotte. They will also become professional firefighters.”
Thank you Rich for all you do to serve the community! As a thank you, we are sending you a $50 gift card to Kanki Japanese House of Steaks & Sushi, the best tasting show in town.
