Congratulations to January’s First Responder of the Month, Justin Cornett from NW Fire
Justin Cornett is a FireMedic – someone on the truck who responds to both fire and medical emergencies. Justin grew up in Tucson and attended to both Pima Community College and The University of Arizona to become a firefighter.
The events of 9/11 and the actions that other firefighters took to help people encouraged Justin to become a firefighter – that and his will to help others.
Given that Justin is a natural Tucsonan, he loves serving his community and being a special and important part of it.
According to Justin, a good first responder must have “a great personality and be willing to dig deep at times to find some strength and energy to overcome some problems that others might be having to help them out.”
