AUSTIN HILL was one of the first full-time firefighters hired by Rutherford County Fire-Rescue. He got interested in helping others and started as a volunteer firefighter at age 19. Austin kept taking classes that enabled him to help others even more. When Rutherford County began to staff a full-time fire department, Austin Hill was one of the first to be hired. His personal file is filled with complimentary letters from residents who are thankful that he helped them in their "time of need". THANK YOU Austin Hill for your outstanding work as a firefighter--YOU definitely made a positive difference in the lives of others!
