At the October 13th meeting of The Exchange Club of Murfreesboro, Andrew Carter was honored as the FireFighter / Advanced EMT of the Year.
Fire Chief Mark Foulks stated that the quick actions and proper training Advanced EMT Carter was still put to the test. Deputy Fire Chief Roger Toombs said that with Carter being the father of young child, he probably had some tough emotions in dealing with the situation.
Exchange Club President Brian Hongsermeier said “Fire Prevention / Rescue has been a major avenue of Exchange Club service since the 1940s. Since its inception, National Exchange Club’s Fire Prevention Program has been endorsed by nearly every U.S. President, and many of the nation’s leading Fire / Rescue Department Officials. Exchange Clubs kick off their Fire Prevention Program campaigns during October which is National Fire Prevention Month.”
Community service is the lifeline of The Exchange Club. This is a Program of Service that most allows The Exchange Club of Murfreesboro to identify leaders in our community who accept the challenge of excellence in their position of a FireFighter / First Responder.
