2010 Fireman of the Year

firefighter_of_yearTim Hoerner was encouraged to join the Fire Company in 1984 by Jerry Smucker after Tim had begun a new company across from the fire station. He was in a prime location to be a driver and was very much needed. Since that time Tim has served as a firefighter, recording secretary, vice president, President, Chief, and mentor.

The technology, teaching, and excitement have kept Tim with the Fire Company in many different roles. He is committed to helping community members as they experience the worst days of their lives when tragedy strikes.

Tim firmly believes in the value of community. His approach to service is to work within the framework of the community. He also stresses the importance of self-management, so that firefighters can do the right thing at the right time in an emergency.
