Name of Hero: Bud White
Hero City: Long Reach
Submitted by: Darren White
My Dad, Bud White has been an Everyday Hero to the community where he lives for the past 56 years. As Chief of the local fire department, he’s responded to thousands of calls for help, from the minor (cat up a tree…. really!) to the unspeakably sad.
Today, at age 72, he is still an active member of the department and is in better physical shape than some of the members half his age. I now have the privilege of working with him on fire scenes including a structure fire that we were both working on last week.
His leadership and dedication have made the department what it is today.
Your story gave me the shivers, my hat off to all the EMS people that make a difference.
