For this Central New York officer, his responsibility to care for and look after members of his community doesn't stop when he clocks out.

Brandon Macrina spends his day job as a resource officer in the Little Falls School District, but according to his nominator Amanda Travis, he's constantly finding other ways to serve his neighbors. Travis said Macrina fixes wrecked vehicles, helps friends with farm work, and, in the midst of the brutal Central New York winters, he even plows driveways and shovels porches for the elderly.

As if all of this weren't enough to keep him busy, Macrina also comes home at the end of the day to help take care of work around the house, dinner, and his 1-year-old daughter Maebelle.

Brandon Macrina is a shining example of the first responder spirit and someone who goes above and beyond the calling of their career. Thank you for all that you do in the Little Falls School District and your community to make it a safer and friendlier place to live.

Include their name, a picture and why they should be recognized during 'First Responder Friday,' presented by Martin, Harding & Mazzotti.
