Our QDR Hometown Hero of this week is Justin Fiedler, a firefighter for Durham and Person counties.
Justin was nominated by Michael Palmer who says, “Justin Fiedler is one of the two drivers assigned to ladder company two at the Durham Field Department, which is also part of Durham‘s Technical Rescue team. Justin also works with Durham 911 on days he is not on duty. Justin, also known as DJ, serves the citizens of the Redwood Fire Department where he serves as a driver and has been there for 14 years. But this hero doesn’t stop there. DJ also serves as a volunteer for the citizens of Person County at Timberlake Volunteer Fire Department and Rescue where he holds the rank of fire lieutenant. Not to mention also being a foreman for Dempsey’s Roofing. Still, after all these years and the long days of serving others, DJ comes home to his wife and three children, where he’s not just known as a hero anymore, but he’s also known as a dad. This is why DJ deserves to be a Hometown Hero.”
Thank you, Justin, for your service! As a token of our appreciation, we’re sending you a gift card to Smithfield’s Chicken ‘N Bar-B-Q to thank you for all you do!
